US trade head, American firms in Sri Lanka hold closed-door talks

ECONOMYNEXT – A United States trade representative has held a closed door meeting with officials of American businesses in Sri Lanka on issues they face and the island’s investment climate.

The American Chamber of Commerce in Sri Lanka said they held a closed-door roundtable discussion with James Golsen, Asia Executive Director, US Department of Commerce and its members.

“The discussion covered issues such as trade tariffs and remedies, e-commerce, issues facing US companies in Sri Lanka and the current trade/investment climate in the country,,” a statement said.

Golsen’s visit to Sri Lanka comes at an opportune time with U.S. trade policy being at the forefront of topical issues, it said.

Golsen oversees the Commerce Department’s operations in 14 Asian posts and manages three Asia-focused policy offices in Washington, DC.
