Ambassador Sison, with the advantage of extensive experience in South Asia, expressed her pleasure at the opportunity of serving in Sri Lanka.
The External Affairs Minister and the American Ambassador discussed co-operation between the two countries in a variety of fields, including trade, investment, defence and the environment.
Minister Peiris will be attending an event over the week-end to mark the 20th anniversary of the American Chamber of Commerce.
