OSL take:
Sri Lanka’s Colombo Port City project is fast becoming a flagship project of the country. With Sri Lanka working towards becoming an emerging business destination in the South Asian region supported by the many trade agreements as well as trade concessions enjoyed by the country, the Colombo Port City project presents a host of new business/investment opportunities for foreign businesses/investors looking at entering the region. The role of former UK Prime Minister Cameron in promoting the Colombo Port City in an overseas market is indicative of the magnitude of business potential presented by the project. Given the importance paid by the Western countries as well as Eastern countries like China to Sri Lanka, foreign businesses/investors could confidently explore the growing opportunities in projects like the Colombo Port City.
