 Sri Lanka Mission observed from the numerous inquiries it received from members of the Polish public and Sri Lanka well-wishers, the high appreciation of and increasing demand for Ceylon tea, spices, handloom items (sarongs, beach wraps, and shawls and accessories, etc.), handicrafts, including traditional masks and woven reed/rattan baskets, handbags, etc., porcelain tableware and giftware, and Ceylon gem encrusted costume jewelry.


When you read the news above start ordering whether Sri Lanka can do better than this to earn more foreign currency 

by selling petty things like tea handlooms and other small items rather than promoting investment in heavy industries like shipbuilding. Steel plants manufacturing agriculture equipment and mining etc 

What is the purpose of having an embassy in Poland where well-clad fashionable ladies sell these petty things?

Sri Lanka should think big 

We should employ knowledgeable export promoters who can identify the need for Sri Lanka at this moment 

Poland is a highly developed European country that can invest in Sri Lanka where commodities can be manufactured using our skilled labour
