The Permanent Secretary for Foreign Affairs of Thailand, Sarun Charoensuwan, said there is vast potential to increase economic cooperation with Sri Lanka and expressed confidence that Thai investments will enter new areas such as agriculture, energy, mines and minerals, and information technology.

He said this when he called on Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena at the Temple Trees today (Aug. 28) with senior foreign ministry officials and a trade and investment delegation.

He said Sri Lanka has made a remarkable recovery from the economic crisis within a short span of one year. He discussed with the Prime Minister bilateral relations, ongoing cooperation, trade and investment, culture, and tourism.


The Prime Minister recalled that Sri Lanka and Thailand have a strong cultural and religious bond because of their shared Buddhist heritage.
