Japan has sent a nano-technology expert and will provide related equipment to Sri Lanka to help the island develop applications that make exports more competitive.
The aid will be given by Japan International Cooperation Agency's (JICA) to the Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology (SLINTEC) under a deal signed Wednesday, the aid agency said in a statement.
JICA's assistance includes the dispatch of a Japanese expert who helped start MEMS/NEMS (Nano‐Electro‐Mechanical‐Systems and Micro-electromechanical Systems) research in Sri Lanka and technology transfer.
"This assistance will further help the introduction of nanotechnology‐ based innovations to small and medium scale industries in Sri Lanka, expediting the penetration process of local industries into international markets," the statement said.
JICA Sri Lanka's Chief Representative Akira Shimura developed nations are infusing major funding into nanotechnology promotion with developing nations following suit.
"JICA hopes nanotechnology will not only provide an opportunity to shape up technological advancement in the country but it will also lead to significant breakthroughs and solve economic, social and environmental problems," said Shimura.
The government set up the SLINTEC to concentrate on nanotechnology applications in fields such as energy, healthcare, textiles, rubber and telecommunications.
Nanotechnology also known as ʺnanotechʺ is the study of manipulating matter on an atomic and molecular scale.
