Nalika Kodikara, the minister counselor commercial of the embassy of Sri Lanka to China, believes that China's lucrative market is powering ahead and will give a boost to the economy of her country.

She lauds the China International Import Expo (CIIE) as an eye-opening and rewarding platform, where enterprises from her country have the opportunity to get closer to their Chinese counterparts and consumers and keep up with market trends. "Most of the companies got new inquiries, new opportunities, new contracts through the CIIE," she says.

Noting that Sri Lanka exported $57 million worth of Ceylon tea to the Chinese market last year, Kodikara says that tea may be a very strong bridge between the two countries.

She also highlights enhanced trade, investment and people-to-people connectivity among countries involved in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), saying that the countries got much closer to the BRI.
