Malaysian PM’s special envoy, Maithri hold talks

01A special envoy of Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak held talks with President Maithripala Sirisena today.

The President’s office said that Datu Seri Utama Samy Vellu called on President Maithripala Sirisena at his official residence today and expressed interest in major joint ventures and investments in several areas.

The team had expressed interest in large-scale joint ventures such as the Colombo unirail project, Colombo-Kandy Highway construction and laying an oil pipeline from Colombo to Katunayake to supply aviation fuel. They said these projects could be worked out under the Built-Operate and Transfer (BOT) system.

President Sirisena, welcoming the delegation, expressed his appreciation over the rapid economic development of Malaysia and emphasized the need for expanding bilateral relations. He also urged Malaysian investors to increase investments in industrial, agricultural and economic sectors.

President Sirisena said his government is very keen to implement major projects that will benefit the economy of the country and the people and it seems preferable to have such projects under Government-to-Government agreements as it would minimize or eliminate corrupt practices in project implementation.

  1. Mr. Dullawe, Dont compare eelamists to Jews. Jews has done a lot of contributions to the world and they are tough on palastinians because of the all the sworn enemies who openly say they want Israel be eliminated. I say our eelamists are much worse than Jews; this breed is out there only to grab others lands. They dont have a country of their own in spite of their spread around the world. Somehow, they figured Sri Lanka is the weakest link and must be a good place to start their land grab. Anyway, i agree this is a low-breed.

  2. ALL FOREIGN DELEGATIONS hold talks with Ranil-Chandrika-Mangala and then have SIRISENA pose for the picture……………WHAT A PATHETIC situation………As one diaspora boy said here, this gov was created by them……no wonder it sucks………..sooner or later the world will realize that this breed is low-breed just like the world at large realized Jews are power and money thirsty killing machine occupying other peoples lands……..
