Following successful engagement on lifting the fisheries ban, expansion into reconciliation and governance will be part of the European Union’s wider strategy with Sri Lankan over the next four years, a statement said yesterday as both sides continued to work towards stronger governance.

The EU-Sri Lanka Working Group on Cooperation concluded on Monday with both sides agreeing to follow-up engagement.  During the meeting the two sides discussed new opportunities for assistance, the EU said in a statement. 

In line with the priorities of the Government of Sri Lanka, it was agreed that the focus of EU’s development strategy for Sri Lanka up until 2020 would be expanded. The EU will continue to support Integrated Rural Development in Sri Lanka in order to foster inclusive economic growth and sustainable development, while reducing poverty and addressing global issues such as climate change.

The EU will also assist Sri Lanka in the field of reconciliation and democratic governance to support the Government in addressing the root causes of the conflict, promote lasting reconciliation and democratic, accountable governance.
