OSL take:

Sri Lanka is focused on getting the country back on track after facing the pandemic challenges. Sri Lanka’s economy has shown great resilience to external and internal challenges through the years and is once again on the path to recovery post-pandemic. The government of Sri Lanka is engaged in an aggressive development programme covering all key economic sectors and is also working to position the country as an emerging business hub in the South Asian region. Supported by the country’s geographical positioning in the Indian Ocean and the many trade agreements as well as concessions enjoyed by the country, the government of Sri Lanka is working towards promoting Sri Lanka’s business potential and the expanding business/investment opportunities in the island. With Sri Lanka’s strategic location in the Indian Ocean attracting much international attention, foreign businesses/investors could confidently explore the growing opportunities in the country.
