Many Sri Lankan businesses are expanding operations to overseas markets indicating a strong growth momentum in the country. It is indicative of the overall strength, growth and resilience of Sri Lanka’s economy that has faced multiple economic challenges in the recent past. However, key economic sectors in the country and the overall economy are now on the recovery path. Nevertheless, many businesses in Sri Lanka’s private sector managed to record growth and profits even while facing challenging economic conditions since the global pandemic and the economic crisis that followed. Given Sri Lanka’s growing business potential and the expanding opportunities, foreign businesses/investors could confidently explore engaging with Sri Lanka. Foreign businesses could also look at forming partnerships or joint ventures with local businesses with the aim of further expansion.
