Sri Lanka’s Port City in Colombo to draw investments in education and finance

The Morning: CHEC Port City Colombo (Pvt.) Ltd., in partnership with the Sri Lanka High Commission in London and the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council (CWEIC), expects to attract investors in the education and finance sectors.
Accordingly, a presentation was organised on investment opportunities in the aforesaid sectors in the Port City Colombo project at the High Commission premises for UK investors on 26 April.
Delivering the welcome address, High Commissioner for Sri Lanka to the UK Saroja Sirisena stated that the education sector in Sri Lanka, which has a structure and framework coherent with the British education system, has always been a catalyst in strengthening the bilateral relationship between the two countries. She invited British companies to partner in brand education in Sri Lanka.
Speaking at the event, CWEIC Deputy Chair Sir Hugo Swire urged British companies to collaborate with and invest in Sri Lanka. He stated that CWEIC wished to closely work with Sri Lanka to help gain the investment recognition that it deserves.
CHEC Port City Colombo Assistant Managing Director Thulci Aluwihare joined the event virtually from Colombo and presented an overview of the Port City project, which is the only waterfront planned city with modern facilities in Asia. He also updated potential investors on the progress of the port city’s construction and the investment opportunities it offers.
Speaking at the event, Gateway Group Chairman Dr. Harsha Alles stated that they hoped to partner with a British school to establish an international school in the Port City aligning with the British system and ethos to cater to the South Asian region and beyond.

OSL take:

The Colombo Port City project is one of the largest development programme in the country that is aimed at taking Sri Lanka to the next level of development. Sri Lanka’s development programme and the positioning of the country as a growing business destination in the South Asian region have expanded the country’s business/investment opportunities. The country’s geographical positioning in the Indian Ocean and the many trade agreements enjoyed by the country have also helped boost Sri Lanka’s image as an emerging business destination in the region. Given the growing business potential in the country and its economic resilience despite facing many internal and external challenges foreign businesses/investors could confidently explore the increasing opportunities in the country.
