Admiral Prof. Colombage introduced the strategic role of Sri-Lanka on the Belt and Road, his work and the potential for cooperation between two countries and the two organisations – the Pathfinder Foundation and the SCBR. He also invited SCBR delegation to pay a visit to Sri Lanka to investigate the business potetial there.

Ÿ   Sri Lanka, having a population of around 22 million with most of its people believe in Buddhism, is an island country in South Asia, located in Indian Ocean to the southwest of the Bay of Bengal and to the southeast of the Arabian Sea, which is of strategic geographical advantage for implementing the Belt and Road Initiative.

Ÿ   The Pathfinder Foundation is a non-profit, non-partisan research and advocacy think-tank which has played a direct and catalytic role in promoting economic policy reforms in Sri Lanka. It has two research centers, focusing on the study of Sri Lanka-China affairs and Sri Lanka-India affairs respectively. The Foundation is signing an cooperation aggrement with Leshan city in Sichuan pronvince on Buddhism studies. It is also facilitating the ties between Colombo, commercial capital and largest city of Sri Lanka, and Chengdu, capital city of Sichuan province.  

Ÿ   The potential for cooperation between two countries is huge. After his visit to Leshan and Mountain Emei, Admiral Prof. Colombage found that Buddhism and Tourism are the two areas Sri-Lanka and Sichuan province share the most common interests. Besides, the market in Sri Lanka is promosing and free trade zones have offered good preference policies for Chinese business. However the business-to-business and people-to-people exchanges between two countries are yet to be improved. And it is where the two organisations can cooperate. 


Chairman Lin Zhongqing concluded the meeting by echoing Admiral Prof. Colombage’s proposal of further cooperation in founding Belt and Road Think Thank Alliance, conducting researches on strategy security of the Indian Ocean, the belt and road initiative, people-to-people connection, buddhism and tourism, and sharing best practices. Chairman Lin also agreed to visit Sri Lanka at a later time this year, and welcomed stronger relationship between two organisations in promoting trade and economic cooperations between Sichuan and Sri Lanka.
