Minister of Sustainable Development and Wildlife Mr. Gamini Jayawickrama Perera engaged in a visit to the Peoples Republic of China in last May. A memorandum of understanding on conservation of natural resources and domestic development was signed between Ministers of both countries.
This agreement underscores the activities related to exchange expert knowledge, training, technical details and information on conservation of local environment and fauna.
