The Foreign Ministry in collaboration of the Export Development Board hosted a virtual meeting between the National Boating Association of Maldives (NBAM) and representatives of the Sri Lanka Boat and Ship Building Industry to enhance mutual cooperation in the industry last week.

Additional Secretary of the Foreign Ministry P.M Amza said this was a landmark event for enhancing collaboration between the two countries to share knowledge and resources which would pave the way for greater physical engagement to conquer the world together.

The Export Development Board has identified ship and boat building as a priority area for Sri Lanka while emphasizing on the strategic location of Sri Lanka, he said.
