Ambassador of Japan to Sri Lanka Kenichi Suganuma, Colombo Municipal Council Deputy Commissioner Thamara Malawaarachchi, Japanese Solidarity Association Vice President Eiji Suga, Colombo Public Library Chief Librarian Varuni Gangabadaarachchi and distinguished guests attended the ceremony.
This project was realised through the goodwill collaboration of Japanese residents in Sri Lanka and Sri Lankan friends of Japan. New book shelves, desks and chairs, etc. were funded by the Japanese community while approximately 350 books on Japan related topics were mainly donated by Sri Lankan nationals.
Speaking at the ceremony, Ambassador Suganuma expressed his gratitude to those involved with this project and expressed his hope that this refurbished Japanese Section would serve as a centre of friendly exchange between Japan and Sri Lanka and a symbol of the long-standing friendly relations between the peoples of Japan and Sri Lanka.
