Namur International Day held strengthening Lanka, Wallonia ties
Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to Belgium Grace Asirwatham boosted relations between the Embassy and the Walloon Capital of Namur during her participation in the annual International Day event held on Saturday (16). This annual event, jointly hosted by Namur Province Governor Denis Mathen, and Mayor Maxime Prevot served as a platform for fostering international relations.
The event’s commemorative souvenir highlighted Governor Denis Mathen’s active involvement with the diplomatic community, which also showcased Ambassador Asirwatham’s meeting with the Governor. The Sri Lankan Embassy hosted a tourism promotion event last year with the support of the Namur Governor’s office.
In August 2023, the Sri Lankan Embassy took another step by publishing a tourism promotion advertisement in a local magazine in Namur. This initiative aimed to keep Sri Lanka fresh in the minds of Namur’s residents as an attractive travel option.
Governor Denis Mathen encouraged Ambassador Asirwatham to organise regular trade and tourism events in Namur. He emphasized that such initiatives would yield positive and constructive outcomes in the long run, strengthening the bonds between the people of Namur and Sri Lanka.
Ambassador Grace Asirwatham expressed her gratitude for the support from the Namur Province and reiterated her commitment to enhancing bilateral relations between Sri Lanka and Namur.
Consul for Sri Lanka in Antwerp Monique De Decker also attended the International Day in Namur in her capacity as the President of the Consular Union in Belgium, strengthening the bonds between Sri Lanka and Wallonia.
