Japan has underscored that Sri Lanka, a developing country, has won the highest attraction of foreign investors.

This emphasis was laid by a group of visiting Japanese Parliamentarians during a meeting with Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne. President of the Japan Parliamentary Friendship Association Hirofumi Hirano pledged that Japan was further willing to extend support for infrastructure development in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka has mooted an accelerated development programme. The Japanese delegation was of the view that there are broad opportunities for foreign investment.

Prime Minister D.M. Dayaratne told the delegation that several large scale development projects have been launched by countries such as South Korea and Iran. He said Sri Lanka highly appreciated foreign assistance received to maintain a strong economic growth rate. Japan’s Ambassador to Sri Lanka Kunio Takahashi was present at this meeting.
