OSL take:

The country’s economic growth and the positioning of Sri Lanka as a fast growing business destination in the South Asian region have opened business opportunities in the country’s hospitality industry. The increasing economic activities in the country and the increasing number of business travelers arriving in Sri Lanka has created the need for the setting up of luxury urban hotels. Sri Lanka’s geographical positioning in the India Ocean, the many trade agreements as well as concessions enjoyed by the country and the increasing business conducive environment have all helped boost the island’s attraction as a regional business hub. The steady growth in the country’s tourism industry has also added to the growing opportunities in Sri Lanka’s leisure and hospitality industries. Therefore, the increasing economic activities have created the need for the setting up of luxury urban hotels and given the growing business potential in the country, foreign businesses/investors could confidently explore opportunities in Sri Lanka’s hospitality sector.
