Let me at the outset thank your Excellency President Yanukovich for your words of introduction. I am pleased to speak a few words on this occasion which convenes the Ukraine -Sri Lanka Business Forum. In my view this Forum is one of special significance to the relations between Sri Lanka and Ukraine, as its objective is to widen the scope of our bilateral relations beyond official contacts between our two governments, and to stimulate direct interaction between the private sector and the business communities through the promotion of economic and trade cooperation.
