While taking into account the policy consistency offered by the country, investors should “examine the richness of the site, listen to the melody and analyse what can be achieved in the country and by doing so, Sri Lanka’s awesome potential will be seen”, he said.


Acknowledging that it is incentives that would draw the eyes of investors to Sri Lanka, Cabraal promised that the government would ensure the investors would be able to reap the benefits of such.


Among other promises were the promise of establishing a sustainable policy framework, improving the ease of doing business indicator and providing enabling legislations.


Meanwhile, on the home front, Cabraal called on local businesses and companies to think long term, so that the macroeconomic fundamentals can be maintained.


“Forge partnerships between yourselves and foreign investors, build spaces and reserves in your companies and then you would find that you would have the necessary ability to go forward with Sri Lanka,” said Cabraal.
