In his address to the senior staff  Wanigasekara shared his vision for the BOI as a dynamic and robust outfit that is equipped and competent to help Sri Lanka to compete internationally with other countries that are vying for a share of the global FDI pool.

He emphasised the importance of research-based targeted marketing campaigns and canvassed the support of all staff members to make the BOI a more proactive, customer-centric agency that acts with an utmost sense of urgency.

He also vouched to accelerate the transformational initiatives of his predecessor and current Chairman Sanajaya Mohottala in making the BOI a one-stop-shop for global investors.

Since his last corporate engagement as a Director of a Moody’s subsidiary, Wanigasekara has been practicing as a Consultant to several Fortune 500 companies and Asia-based PE Funds on investment analysis, M&A and operations optimisation.
