Meeting with the Prime Ministers -February 2017
Sri Lankan Prime Minister Hon. Ranil Wickremesinghe and several cabinet ministers are currently in Australia on a state visit. The Prime Minister of Australia Hon. Malcolm Turnbull hosted a reception in honour of Prime Minister Hon. Ranil Wickremesinghe and Prof. Maithree Wickramasinghe, at the Parliament House in Canberra on 14 February 2017.
Since ALMA is a recognised Sri Lankan community organisation in Australia, ALMA President Rafi Mubarak and Secretary Feroze Razik were invited to attend this occasion.
The Prime Minister's visit also marks the 70 years of bilateral diplomatic relationship between Sri Lanka and Australia.
Among other guests, there were many Australian government ministers, MPs and diplomats present at this occasion. Another significance of this event was the presence of the Sri Lankan national cricket team and the Australian Prime Minister's XI cricket team.
