Sri Lanka to ink an MoU with Qatar

The Government will ink agreements in the fields of  Energy, Water Supply & Waste Management and Diplomatic Training and Research with the State of Qatar, during President Maithripala Sirisena’s official visit to the state this week. Cabinet approval has been received for a joint proposal made by Minister of Petroleum Resources Development Arjuna Ranatunga and Minister of Power and Renewable Energy Ranjith Siyambalapitiya to sign a memorandum of understanding on co-operation in the energy sector between the two countries. The Government is of the view that since Qatar is a major country producing petroleum and natural gases in the Gulf region, it is of paramount importance to co-operate with the rich Gulf state in overcoming future challenges in the energy sector in Sri Lanka.
