On October 6, the Sri Lankan Consulate in Gothenburg was officially opened, together with the Embassy of Sri Lanka Stockholm and the Sri Lankan Ambassador to Sweden H.E Ambassador Dharshana M. Perera. This also means that Gothenburg is even stronger, with a second place on the world list of the number of consulates in the city.

Thanks to everyone who came and participated during the opening ceremony. I am humbled and grateful for the position of trust as Honorary Consul. I look forward to continue my mission to represent Sri Lankans in Western Sweden and strengthen the bonds between Sri Lankan and the region.

Honorary Consul for Sri Lanka in Gothenburg
