An Opportunity to Modi-fy the Visit
Mr. Modi’s visit to Sri Lanka, the first by an Indian Prime Minister in 28 years, presents an opportunity to examine the ways and means of strengthening Indo – Lanka economic relations to boost the prosperity of this country. The path of Indo – Lankan bilateral relations will have a significant influence on Sri Lanka’s ability to realise its full economic potential. Mr. Modi’s re-setting of India’s relations with its neighbours offers an opportunity which needs to be grasped. There are a number of areas where his visit can serve to advance the agenda.
