February 4th marks the 70th anniversary of Sri Lankan independence.  It also marks the70th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the United States and Sri Lanka.  In honor of this milestone, the U.S. Embassy in Colombo will launch a series of programs over the course of the next twelve months.

Encompassing cultural events, educational opportunities, and community engagements that will involve Sri Lankans from all backgrounds and regions of the country, the #USSL70 campaign underscores the seven decades of respect and partnership that have characterized the U.S.-Sri Lanka relationship.

“Our Embassy community is delighted to celebrate this wonderful anniversary with our Sri Lankan friends and partners,” said Ambassador Keshap.  “For seven decades, the United States has stood shoulder to shoulder with Sri Lanka, whether as one of the largest donors of foreign assistance or as Sri Lanka’s largest trading partner.

#USSL70 will also highlight new significant bilateral initiatives, such as the signing of the Peace Corps’ bilateral agreement to return to Sri Lanka.  During the campaign, exercises between the two countries’ militaries will enhance disaster response capabilities and expand interoperability.  Supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development, job training programs will help prepare Sri Lankan youth for employment in the 21stcentury, while agricultural assistance will help make Sri Lanka’s dairy industry more productive.
