SRI LANKA: Rubber industry meets Chinese delegation
The Sri Lanka Association of Manufacturers and Exporters of Rubber Products (SLAMERP) recently met with the China Rubber Industry Association at the Rubber secretariat to discuss opportunities to collaborate and expand bilateral business.
SLAMERP said that it was a long-standing relationship that Sri Lanka and China had in this sector dating back to 1953. The Sri Lanka rubber export industry is a billion-dollar industry and had greater potential to expand and the FTA (Free Trade Agreement) that is on the pipeline with China will create more market access to Sri Lankan exporters for new and existing products.
