Sri Lanka urged the Sri Lankan diasporas in Switzerland to return home and contribute to the development of the country. Minister of Prison Reforms, Rehabilitation, Resettlement and Hindu Religious Affairs, D.M. Swaminathan noted that there are around 50,000 Sri Lankans in Switzerland. He says the Sri Lankans in Switzerland continue to make a significant contribution to Swiss society. “The unity Government has already invited the diasporas including those in Switzerland to return to their motherland and assist in the rebuilding of the country to realise its true potential,” he said. Swaminathan was speaking at an event held at the residence of the Swiss Ambassador to Sri Lanka Heinz Walker- Nederkoorn recently, to mark the Swiss National Day.
