Top American companies from a wide variety of sectors are showcasing their products, technologies, and services at U.S. Trade Show 2015 from November 17-18 at the Hotel Galadari in a free event open to the public. U.S. Ambassador Atul Keshap and chief guest, Honorable Minister of Trade and Commerce Rishad Bathiudeen, attended the opening ceremony today.
“It is clear to me that there is a new and tremendous opportunity for the United States and Sri Lanka to work together to enhance our economic relationship and expand bilateral trade,” said Ambassador Keshap.
U.S. Trade Show 2015 is an opportunity for the local business community and the public to meet with representatives from approximately 30 U.S.-affiliated companies to explore new business partnerships and suppliers, expand their product lines and services, and learn about the latest technologies.
“American companies are some of the most dependable business partners you will find anywhere, producing the highest quality products and services in the world,” added Ambassador Keshap.
Key sectors such as transportation, information technology, food preparation, agriculture, cosmetics, logistics, machine tools, education and energy are represented at U.S. Trade Show 2015. Some of the U.S. companies already have a strong presence in Sri Lanka while others are new to the market.
