|Sri Lanka wins 2nd Place in one of the largest cultural Pageants|
In the year 2012, Sri Lanka was awarded the First Place among the 99 countries with a pageant led by the Channa Upuli Cultural Troop. After a lapse of one year, the association, which is the oldest Sri Lankan association in Germany, again represented the country’s culture and its heritage at the pageant, which is admired by millions of people watching alongside the route. The First Place went to the country presentation by Colombia and the Third Place went to Palestine. Sri Lanka is the only country representing Asia to win this place, which was competed very enthusiastically by many nations and organizations spending greater funds than Sri Lanka spent.
H.E. Mr. Sarrath Kongahage, Ambassador of Sri Lanka in Germany, congratulates the Sri Lanka Association for the great contribution they have done to achieve this for our country and also thanks the sponsors, the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau and Sri Lanka Tea Board, for their contribution for make this success.
