CSE to promote Sri Lanka with Zurich, London roadshows this month


Oct 19, 2015 (LBO) – The Colombo Stock Exchange will promote the Sri Lankan market with two roadshows in Zurich and London this month.

A breakfast meeting in Zurich on October 28 and an investor forum in London on October 29-30 will have representatives of Sri Lankan brokerages and the financial sector with the attendance of Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake.

Four investor forums were held in 2014 in Singapore, London, New York and Colombo which brought together capital market participants and institutional investors.

“Sri Lanka’s economy has been on an upward trajectory since the end of the three-decade civil war in May 2009. This significant growth has been a result of the peace dividend, along with subsequently introduced well-executed development plans,” the CSE said promoting the forum.

“Sri Lanka currently boasts South Asia’s highest GDP growth, conducive fiscal and monetary policy, and favorable socio-economic conditions, which together create an attractive investment destination.”

Although it seems current data is being uploaded to the forum site, the Sri Lanka market is well positioned to benefit from political stability after elections in August and a peace dividend after the end of the war with Tamil Tiger separatists.
