Trade and Investment

Sri Lanka is a well-known trading center for all time due to its strategic location in the Indian Ocean, which it shares with trade routes running from the East to the West. Over the past six decades, Sri Lanka’s international commercial relations have seen significant transformation. In general, it is a tale of adopting an outward-oriented trade regime, punctuated with brief times when it looked inwards, in order to increase international market access for its goods and services on the bilateral, regional, and multilateral fronts.

Trade and investment are more closely tied to national development. The Office for Overseas Sri Lankan Affairs (OOSLA) can create a framework to entice investment from OSL to make their significant contribution to Sri Lanka’s growth as a central point of coordination. OSLs will gain satisfaction by serving their motherland as an active citizen of Sri Lanka.

The National Chamber of Commerce
The National Chamber of Commerce of Sri Lanka (NCCSL) was founded in 1948 soon after Sri Lanka gained independence from British Colonial Rule primarily, for the purpose of establishing a forum for the Sri Lankan business community. The foremost objective of the Chamber at that time was the Colonization of trade, as the policy climate was not quite conducive to national interests.Link 1 / Link2/
