Sri Lanka is a highly conducive location for investment opportunities in the South Asian region offering a well-educated and skilled work force, low-cost manufacturing environment and attractive incentives, combined with an ideal location mid-way between international sea and air routes. The Government has created a strategic road map for improving and reforming the investment climate.
During the Post war period, Sri Lanka has been growing rapidly, averaging a GDP growth of 5% and a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5%. Sri Lanka is at the inflection point of USD 4000 GDP per capita, which is around 3 times South Asia’s average GDP per capita. Thanks to its location, Sri Lanka has become the transshipment hub in South Asia and is fast becoming the epicenter for business in South Asia.
The next wave of rapid growth is anticipated in South Asia and East Africa. This will enable Sri Lanka to leverage on these growth opportunities.
