Ms. Becker paid a visit to Jaffna Wednesday to attend this seminar. The visit was her first since she assumed duties as FES resident representative in Sri Lanka in November last year, sources said.

In her keynote address, Ms. Becker made an appeal to CTTU to create awareness among its members regarding the globalization concept. She said the CTTU has a responsibility to remove the fear among its members that globalization would bring serious consequences later, sources said.
