Sri Lanka promotes Commonwealth Business Forum in London

Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Chris Nonis, held a launch event at the Sri Lanka High Commission, in London this week, to promote the Commonwealth Business Forum that will precede the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in November this year, reported Sri Lanka's Ministry of Defence.

Opening the event Nonis said that “Sri Lanka achieved peace in the country under the leadership of Mahinda Rajapaksa, and CHOGM 2013 in Sri Lanka is a wonderful opportunity for all heads, Foreign Ministers and their delegations, and the world’s media to see for themselves the reality of contemporary Sri Lanka.”

Nonis welcomed over 170 guests to the launch event who included, Secretary General of the Commonwealth, Kamalesh Sharma, representatives of Prince Charles’ office, representatives from the British commerce industry and representatives from several civil society organisations.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
