Message of the President of the Sri Lanka – China Friendship Association
Launching the Web Site of the Sri Lanka – China Friendship Association (SLCFA) is an important juncture of the People to People diplomacy between Sri Lanka and China.
This Web Site would pave way to understand and appreciate the principles, activities and the history of the People to People friendship with Sri Lankan characteristics, not only for peoples of Sri Lanka and China, but to the people of the whole world. As the President of the Sri Lanka – China Friendship Association it definitely is my honour and privilege to submit this message of greetings for the auspicious occasion of the SLCFA Web Site.
The SLCFA is the pioneer organization dedicated to promote friendship between Sri Lanka and China, inaugurated in 1950, just a few month after the establishment of the People’s Republic of China in Beijing, and also prior to the very first bilateral Trade Pact in 1952 and diplomatic relations in 1957 between our two countries.
