The External Affairs Minister of India Dr. S. Jaishankar will arrive in Sri Lanka on an official visit on June 20, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

During a recent meeting with President Ranil Wickremesinghe in India, Dr. Jaishankar addressed the swift resumption of development projects initiated in Sri Lanka with Indian investments, which had been halted midway.

He expressed his intent to visit Sri Lanka in the near future to oversee the progress of these activities. Minister Jaishankar assured that he would visit Sri Lanka soon to coordinate the Prime Minister’s visit and expedite the commencement of development projects funded by Indian investments.

Minister Jaishankar has also noted plans for an industrial zone in Trincomalee, to be established by the Indian government, which will attract numerous Indian investors and potentially investors from other countries.
