This RMB 2,000 million will provide welcome relief and create more confidence in our economy, said Ambassador Dr. Kohona. The Ambassador thanked the Government of China for extending this facility at a time when Sri Lanka is facing an economic challenge exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr. Kohona also said that China has been assisting Sri Lanka by providing COVID-19 vaccine. “So far, Sri Lanka has received 12 million doses of Sinopharm vaccine on commercial terms and another 2.7 million doses have been given,” he said.
Dr. Kohona said that the Sri Lankan people will always remember the assistance extended by China at this trying time.
