The two countries have remained helpful to each other especially during times calling for disaster relief. During the visit of H.E. Yu Zhengsheng, Chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), in April 2017, the Chinese Government also declared to donate 90 water bowsers worth Rs. 1 billion to assist Sri Lanka easing the impact of adverse climate conditions.
