Sri Lanka's Ambassador to China Palitha Kohona said the country should increase exports to the Chinese market and reduce dependency on the United States and the European Union, local media reported here Monday.
"There is a huge issue with Sri Lankan exports and also positioning which has to be addressed soon," Kohona said at the Colombo Silk Road Professionals and Industrialists Forum.
Kohona said the 10-fold increase in the volume of tea exports to China since 2010 is positive, and that local exporters should address growing Chinese demand for packaged black tea while pursuing advertising on Chinese digital media.
He said that discussions on a Sri Lanka-China free trade agreement would be expedited in order to boost Sri Lankan exports to China.
