OSL take:

Sri Lanka’s tea industry has recorded a steady growth by showing an increase in the prices fetched by Ceylon tea in the market – be it local or global. Sri Lanka’s tea authorities are engaged in promotional campaigns overseas while also working to further develop the country’s tea production line through value additions. The many trade agreements as well as concessions enjoyed by the country have also helped Sri Lanka’s tea exports. Given the expansion in Sri Lanka’s tea industry, foreign businesses/investors could confidently explore the growing opportunities in the industry.
