A delegation representing the Chengdu Association of Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation (CAFTEC) is now in Sri Lanka on a fact-finding mission. The delegation which arrived on Sunday met several Chinese corporate officials doing business in Sri Lanka and also met representative of Sri Lankan Chambers.
“After the Easter, Sunday bomb blasts and adverse travel advisory imposed by the Chinese government against Sri Lanka Chinese investors are having second thoughts in investing in Sri Lanka,” said CAFTEC Deputy Secretary-General Qingwen Zhang. She said that after visiting Sri Lanka they feel that things are falling back to place and security is tightened.
She said that there nearly 100 big and small time Chinese investors were doing business in Sri Lanka and most of them are based out of Chengdu.
