French Ambassador Eric Lavertu, who called on Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday said French investors were showing a  keen interest in investing in the Hambantota port and in the plantation sector.   

 

 

Taxation policies need to be revisited by future Govt. to make it investor friendly

 

In a statement, the Opposition Leader’s Office said Ambassador Lavertu met Mr. Rajapaksa at his official residence last morning and thanked the Opposition leader for his presence at the French National Day the previous week.   


The Ambassador said there were many investment opportunities in Sri Lanka, if the political and economic policies provide more stability to create an environment conducive to attract foreign investors.    He said the Hambantota port was strategically located at the heart of global traffic, thereby by default making it a great opportunity for any investor.   


Mr. Rajapaksa is said to have expressed his agreement and said the taxation policies would also have to be revisited by a future government to make it investment-friendly.   
The meeting was also attended by Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Chairman G.L. Peiris.
