The First Session of Political Consultations between Sri Lanka and Georgia was held from 3-4 August 2016 at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Colombo.

The inaugural political consultations were preceded by the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Political Consultations between the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of Sri Lanka and Georgia. The consultations between the two countries served as the first formal process to comprehensively review the bilateral relationship of nearly eighteen years since 1998.

The discussions broadly focused on bilateral trade and investment, and envisaged cooperation in the areas of culture, science and technology, education, agriculture, including tourism. Sri Lanka’s reconciliation process and shared issues of interest at the regional and multilateral fora, were also discussed. In reaffirming the close ties of friendship between Sri Lanka and Georgia, both sides agreed to further build on the momentum generated through the first session of formal consultations, and follow-up on discussions, and regularly review progress.

The second session of Political Consultations will be held in Georgia in the second quarter of 2017.  

Deputy Foreign Minister and head of the Georgian delegation Mr. David Jalagania called on Mr. Esala Weerakoon, Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and discussed the status of Sri Lanka – Georgia bilateral relations and the way forward. The delegation also had a focused meeting with senior officials of the Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Sri Lanka.

The Sri Lanka delegation was led by Mrs. Grace Asirwatham, Additional Secretary (Economic Affairs & Trade, Middle East & Africa and West) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
