After a period of instability Sri Lanka has emerged as a star in recent years. With its economy growing over 6% in the past few years, the GDP reached US$67 billion by end 2013. The country is poised for sustained growth of 8% and is projected that in the next 5 years, Sri Lanka’s economy could surpass US$100 billion with per capta income exceeding US$5,000*.
Backed by a stable and committed Government which has introduced a number of forward thinking policies, Sri Lanka is the next key investment and business destination. In particular, the country has witnessed a number of infrastructure projects which will provide a backbone for growth. Among the key growth drivers of the economy are the tourism and the building & construction sectors. This can be seen with the number of international hotels being built in Colombo and other key cities.
