Sri Lanka’s economic resilience amidst challenges posed by the global Covid 19 pandemic, the ongoing development programme and the move towards becoming an emerging business destination in the South Asian region has made Sri Lanka one of the most attractive business/investment destinations in the country. The country’s geographical positioning in the Indian Ocean and the many trade agreements as well as concessions enjoyed by the country have also added to Sri Lanka’s attractiveness as a business destination in the region. Foreign businesses/investors could therefore explore the growing business potential and opportunities in Sri Lanka.
