Sri Lankan Trade Looking Forward

Submitted on Friday, 17th March 2017

Having ended a long, ruinous civil war in 2009, Sri Lanka is now looking to the future. Sri Lanka’s government is easing trade conditions to encourage investment in the hope that “following a new path” could reap dividends.

Sri Lanka has some distinct advantages – located very close to the ever-growing India, a strong tradition of personal citizen banking and a high output of university graduates when compared to other countries in the region.

Some have said that Sri Lanka can be the “Hong Kong to India, for financial and other services”.

“Invest Sri Lanka” is an investment forum to be held in Melbourne on 23 March. Register to attend here
