Sri Lanka should develop infrastructure, skills

Positioning country as training hub:

Sri Lanka is keen to be a training hub for global trade and policies in the region and has taken steps to give exposure to mid career level staff of the Treasury and other related organizations involved in global trade.

Speaking to media on Sri Lanka’s contribution to the international Trade and the role of the World Trade Organization in Colombo on Friday Temasek Foundation Centre for Trade and Negotiation (TFCTN) Head Dr Deborah Elms said, that Sri Lanka should develop infrastructure and skills required to position the country as a training hub.

She said that there is a mismatch of skills available and skills required in the country and the government should continue this training to bridge this gap. The country is moving in the right direction and it could be a good export market for agricultural products and eco tourism.

Dr Elms said the trade environment in India, Sri Lanka and China is very important to Sri Lanka and the country should be open to the domestic market. She said that the Sri Lanka Government buys a lot of services and the staff involved in this should have better knowledge to identify future challenges. The global economy has changed a lot during the last two years and Sri Lanka being a member of World Trade Organization the staff should be aware of all these trade related issues for the benefit of the country.

The TFCTN conducted two day residential training program for 40 participants nominated by each organization at Negombo Jet Wing Hotel.
