Boris Johnson, UK’s Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, and other key interlocutors. The discussions are expected to review developments in the bilateral relationship, including the way forward to further advance trade and investment between the two countries,” the ministry said in a statement. 
Mr Samaraweera is scheduled to hold an event at Chatham House, as well as attend a meeting with the Commonwealth Secretary General, Patricia Scotland.
