Floods, landslide victims get humanitarian aid after nine months

SRI Lanka’s flood victims have received 300 tons of rice support thanks to the Myanmar government for the compassion.

According to Xinhua, the donation was provided by the Rangoon administration and Myanmar Rice Federation.

The official Global New Light of Myanmar reported today that the donation is made as humanitarian aid for victims of the flood and landslide in Sri Lanka in May 2017, which killed more than 200 people and left 600,000 homeless.

The shipment of aid from Yangon Port is expected to arrive at Sri Lankan port in early next month.

Myanmar and Sri Lanka have been engaged in economic, social and cultural exchanges and there is business-to-business cooperation besides a government-to-government agreement between the two countries.

Bilateral trade between Myanmar and Sri Lanka reached 36 million U.S. dollars and the volume is on the rise annually.
