Sri Lanka is on the path of reaching the status of being a business hub in the South Asian region. Part of the process is the development of economies in the provinces. The local and small businesses in the country’s provinces are an emerging business/investment opportunity for foreign businesses looking at opportunities in Sri Lanka. After all, Sri Lanka’s geographical positioning in the Indian Ocean, ease of doing business environment and the many trade agreements as well as trade concessions enjoyed by the country have made it a business hub in the South Asian region.
