Strategic Importance of Sri Lanka In the region

There have been significant advances made in regional cooperation, especially among Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. The increased intra-regional flow of investments and expertise in South Asia is helping to quickly create a new vertical integration value chain. Sri Lanka holds interest for the region, because of its expertise, high value business model and relationships with leading international brands. And with barriers disappearing through FTAs with Pakistan and India, the opportunities locally, regionally and globally multiply for regional players who choose Sri Lanka as a base to set up fabric and weaving mills.
