OSL take:
Sri Lanka’s energy industry, which has opened up its local retail market, has presented many new business/investment opportunities in the country. The entrance of three new foreign players to the local market and their island-wide operations have presented new business/investment opportunities for local as well as foreign businesses. The country’s energy industry is to see a further expansion in the coming months with Sri Lanka’s overall economic activities on the growth path. With Sri Lanka also looking at venturing into oil exploration, the business/investment opportunities in the energy industry will see more business/investment opportunities. Foreign businesses/investors could therefore explore the growing business/investment opportunities in Sri Lanka’s energy industry.
