Chinese Communist Party and SLPP hold joint seminar on governance

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) held a joint seminar on governance.

Sports and Youth Affairs Minister Namal Rajapaksa tweeted saying he was honored to be a part of the CPC and SLPP Advanced Seminar on Governance Experience.

The seminar was hosted by the Chinese Embassy in Sri Lanka and the SLPP.

Rajapaksa said the seminar aims to develop institutional cooperation on a political level and at a people level.

“I am hopeful that the youth will lead this,” he tweeted.

Just recently US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo had said that China is a predator and continues to violate sovereignty on land and at sea.

While in Sri Lanka, Pompeo had said that democracies like the US and Sri Lanka have a shared vision for free and open shipping lanes.

“These are visions the people of Sri Lanka share with the people of the United States. The Chinese have a different vision. We want to make sure the people of Sri Lanka can exercise their sovereign right to remain independent,” he said.

Concerns have been raised over the years on the Chinese presence in Sri Lanka, in particular over the lack of transparency with its financial dealings in Sri Lanka. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. What can Sri Lanka learn from the Chinese method of governance ? Is it that all protestors should be shot or run over with tanks; all dissidents should be jailed and never seen again, and any nation which dares condemn China will have all imports severely curtailed or disrupted.

    President Gota needs to ‘muzzle’ Namal and Weerawansa. These two clowns continue to make Sri Lanka an international laughing stock with their asinine comments.

    • South Asia has two billion people, what’s the benefit other than destroying the environment?

      Chinese state media reports a $6 billion ban on seven key Australian products is imminent. Chinese have backbone to deal with white supremacists, but two billion South Asians cannot question the Australia’s double standards, because they are only exploring human biology to breed as rabbits. Uncontrollable population with limited resources, this creates dependency on the West. Currently, Sri Lanka gets loans to entertain its foolish population. Eventually, your ignorance will eat you.

  2. Sri Lankans who are domiciled abroad should be given the opportunity by the Chinese Embassy in Colombo to participate in these Seminars on Governance experiences. I hope that the Chinese Embassy in Sri Lanka will take necessary steps to make this happen.

    • Brilliant idea ! You can add your ‘voice’ to the masses of Uyghurs trying to convince the Chinese government that democracy is the best form of governance, and Islam is the religion of peace.

      At least your organs will be put to good use.
