  • Island Nation of 20 Mn people. Situated at the base of India.
    Sri Lanka is to India just like Hong Kong is to China.
    As can be seen, we are located strategically at the mid point between East and West.
    After 30 years of fighting terrorism, a solid peace has now returned to Sri Lanka. The political stability is undoubted, as we have the strongest Government we have had in decades. The ruling coalition enjoys a majority in excess of 2/3 rd of the Parliamentary seats, which is a huge achievement under a PR system.
    We are thriving democracy with an Executive Presidency and a parliament of 225 members.
    Sri Lanka’s economy has been growing at an average 8% and the trend is expected to continue.
    We achieved US$ 1.07 Billion in FDI in 2011, and are well on track to achieve US$ 2 Billion in 2012.
    We have probably the highest literacy rate after Japan and Korea in Asia, and this is mainly due to free education provided from Kindergarten to University.
    Even in the worst of times that Sri Lanka has undergone in the recent past, we have never ever defaulted on our international debt obligations, which speaks volume for the resilience of our economy.
