The participation of Turkish entrepreneurs in the rapidly expanding construction work in Sri Lanka was a key aspect of the discussions between President Mahinda Rajapaksa and Turkish President Abdullah Gul at the United Nations Wednesday.
President Gul was told of the major development initiatives being taken by Sri Lanka that require infrastructure development, and considerable investment in housing, especially in the post-conflict situation.
The major advances that Turkey had made in the construction sector could help Sri Lanka in this work.
President Gul, who agreed to assist Sri Lanka in the field of construction congratulated President Rajapaksa on the successful defeat of terrorism and the current emphasis on development together with reconciliation.
