The best destination in Asia to Grow your business

Sri Lanka is strategically located at the crossroads of major shipping routes to South Asia, the Far East, and the continents of Europe and America. Home to one of the Top 25 Container Ports in the World, the country is a key port of call for shipping lines and airfreight services. Further, Sri Lanka’s proximity to the Indian sub-continent positions the country as a gateway to a market of 1.9 billion people in South Asia alone. These factors combined, generate keen interest for Sri Lanka as a preferred investment destination in the region.
