Sky is the limit for SL-India partnership: Indian HC
The "sky is the limit" for the partnership between India and Sri Lanka, India's High Commissioner Gopal Baglay said on Thursday.
He expressed these views during an event held to mark 58 years of capacity-building partnership between India and Sri Lanka through the Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation (ITEC).
"The High Commissioner emphasised the importance of ITEC cooperation in the overall India-Sri Lanka partnership and remarked that "sky is the limit" for the bilateral partnership," the Indian High Commission said.
According to PTI news, the ITEC network in Sri Lanka is ever-growing with more than 400 slots offered every year. Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation Programme (ITEC) is a bilateral assistance programme run by the Government of India.
It is a demand-driven, response-oriented programme that focuses on addressing the needs of developing countries through innovative technological cooperation between India and the partnering nation.
Baglay also noted India's endeavour to help Sri Lanka in the education sector, including in higher education through partnerships between higher education institutes in India and Sri Lanka.
