The Sri Lanka-America Chamber of Commerce, in American was inaugurated and established on Dec 9 by a group of professional Sri Lankan expatriates centering the City of Las Vegas with the blessings of the United States Congressional leaders.

The Sri Lankan expatriates selected the City of Las Vegas to make it the Chamber’s headquarters because of the global attraction it has for international conventions that brings trade and commerce activist leaders and influential economic peddlers to the city.

Sensing the importance of a twin-nation commerce, trade and investment arrangement of this nature that could bring more meaningful economic engagement between the United States and Sri Lanka, five Members of U.S. Congress – both House and Senate – apart from sending their immediate staff to the event, communicated through video messages, commending the initiators of the Chamber project, some of whom they knew, and aired congratulatory messages. They expressed confidence that the Chamber could bring conducive atmosphere for American entrepreneurs to search avenues for investments and economic enhancement in Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka’s new Ambassador to Washington, Mahinda Samarasinghe, delivered a congratulatory message on a video clip.

On behalf of the United States of America, I offer warm congratulations to the people of Sri Lanka on the 74th anniversary of your independence on February 4.

The United States and Sri Lanka have a long history of friendship and partnership.  As you commemorate your national day, we take a moment to celebrate our joint work on economic recovery, democratic governance, and bringing our people together.  Over the last year, the United States and Sri Lanka collaborated to respond to maritime environmental disasters and support affected communities, promote sustainable economic development, and increase opportunities for women and small businesses.  The United States provided life-saving vaccines, ventilators, and technical assistance to support Sri Lanka’s COVID-19 response.  We know that when our governments and societies work together, we can increase prosperity, security, and harmonious relations in our countries and across the globe.

We send our best wishes for a joyous National Day.

Antony J. Blinken,
Secretary of State
