United States Ambassador to Sri Lanka Julie Chung has recalled the multitude of ways the US and Sri Lanka have come together in 2022 to make a difference.

“In 2022 alone, the United States has announced more than $240 million in new assistance to Sri Lanka”, taking to Twitter, the Ambassador said.

“That new assistance supports basic food security and addresses the needs of the most vulnerable communities, including funding for school lunches, fertilizer for small holder farmers, and cash assistance for new and expectant mothers,” she said.

As I reflect on 2022, I’m thinking about the multitude of ways that the US and SL have come together over the last year to make a difference. In 2022 alone, the United States has announced more than $240M in new assistance to Sri Lanka.

“We are also supporting loans, training & assistance for SMEs in Sri Lanka, as they face the heaviest burden in times of crisis. This assistance is on top of our existing development partnership working with government, the private sector, civil society, and the people of Sri Lanka,” she added.

“The relationship between the two countries, however, is much bigger than just about assistance. – It’s about partnership,” the Ambassador said.

2022 has been an unforgettable year and said she is hopeful that 2023 will bring economic recovery, lasting change, and new opportunities to the people of Sri Lanka, Ambassador Chung said.
