Sri Lanka has hosted a mass wedding for 100 Chinese couples at a grand ceremony in Colombo.
The royal wedding was attended by President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.
Minister of Megapolis and Western Development Patali Champika Ranawaka said the event was held to strengthen ties between Sri Lanka and China.
The event was organised by the Ministry of Megapolis and Western Development, the Ministry of Tourism and the Chinese government. Sri Lanka and China share longstanding and deep relations in all sectors.
The couples were given an all expense paid stay in Sri Lanka following the wedding ceremony so they can experience what Sri Lanka offers tourists.
