He said the country has provided many options for discerning investors through a pragmatic implementation of “Public Private Partnership” framework under a “win-win” situation. He said one of the areas offering opportunities is agriculture as the traditional agricultural sector is meant to convert into commercial one.

The proposed “Colombo International Financial City” is another area of viable investment for its geographical location and as it is open to huge markets of the countries in the SAARC region.

Going by the punch line – this century is “Asia’s century” Sri Lanka claims it share as the most peaceful country in the region for investors to launch their stable business ventures, the minister said.
