Oct 01, 2011 (LBO) – Visiting Vietnam President Truong Tan Sang will address a business forum in Sri Lanka’s capital Colombo, where a high level delegation of Vietnamese businessmen will also be taking part, the island’s largest trade chamber said. “They are also interested in tourism projects such as eco-tourism, spiritual tourism, inbound and outbound travel, airline services, banking, and shipping services,” the Ceylon Chamber said.

“The delegates also wish to expand trade activities for products such as cement, fertiliser, canned fish, construction material, high breed rice, plastic products and electronics.”
