Sri Lanka is looking to unleash a decade of growth to rapidly increase its GDP, taking advantage of its inherent strengths and global supply chain shifts. Our strategic location combined with our business-friendly policies will be an accelerator for this fast-paced growth.

The Sri Lankan Government is pro development. We proactively support businesses, as is evident from our progressive policies, policy consistency, and fiscal incentives. The upcoming Port City will create an even more conducive environment for Foreign Direct Investments into Sri Lanka.
