Ferry service between India, Sri Lanka will enhance connectivity, promote trade: PM Modi

Date:

New Delhi, Oct 14 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said ferry service between and Sri Lanka would enhance connectivity, promote trade and reinforce the longstanding bonds between the two countries.

In his message delivered virtually during the flag-off event of the ferry service from India's Nagapattinam to Sri Lanka, he said that during the recent visit of Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe, they jointly adopted a vision document for the economic partnership between the two countries.

“Connectivity is the central theme of this partnership,” he said.

“Great poet Subramania Bharati in his song ‘Sindhu nadhiyin misai' had spoken of a bridge connecting our two countries (India and Sri Lanka). This ferry service brings alive all those historical and cultural connections,” he said.

“Our vision for connectivity goes beyond the transport sector. India and Sri Lanka collaborate closely in a wide range of areas such as Fintech and energy,” Modi said.

In a post on X, he said ferry services between India and Sri Lanka would enhance connectivity, promote trade and reinforce the longstanding bonds between the two nations.
