Kenya has requested Sri Lanka to provide engineering consultancy services in irrigation and power sectors. Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva said it is an opportunity to demonstrate the skills of their engineers to the world.
The Minister said a Kenyan delegation met him as they desired to seek engineering consultation from Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka will be able to earn a high income by providing engineering consultancy services for the construction of large scale power plants and irrigation projects in Kenya.
This will contribute towards strengthening the economy and earning foreign exchange to make Sri Lanka the wonder of Asia.
Meanwhile the Minister said that agreements have already been signed to provide engineering consultancy services to countries such as Rwanda, Uganda and Malavi.
