SL’s boat manufacturing capabilities highlighted in Jordan

The Sri Lankan Embassy in Jordan with the active facilitation of the Sri Lanka Export Development Board held a virtual meeting on January 6 to showcase Sri Lanka’s highly specialized boat manufacturing capabilities to a Jordanian boat importing company.

The boat importing company in Aqaba Port City currently sources and imports boats for the Jordanian, Iraqi and Saudi Arabian markets.

The city of Aqaba, located at the northeastern tip of the Red Sea, is the only seaport of Jordan and the primary gateway to Jordanian markets.

Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to Jordan Shanika Dissanayake was joined by Neil Marine, Danusha Group, BAFF Polymech and Solas Marine. Export Development Board Director Anoma Premathilleke and her team were also a part of the extensive discussions.

The meeting was organized by the Sri Lankan Embassy in Jordan to harness the economic potential in Sri Lanka’s boat manufacturing sector towards achieving its economic diplomacy objectives.
