G.L. Peiris has expressed Sri Lanka’s keen interest to transform bilateral ties with Hungary into a results-oriented, multi-faceted partnership at a meeting with the Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó on Wednesday (Jan. 12).
Towards this end, the two Ministers agreed to convene the second session of the Sri Lanka-Hungary Joint Commission on Economic Cooperation (JCEC) at an early date this year.
Noting that development cooperation comprises an important element of the bilateral partnership, Minister Peiris conveyed Sri Lanka’s appreciation to Hungary for providing infrastructure development assistance to Sri Lanka through a soft loan of Euro 52 million.
