Invitation To Exhibit
Sri Lanka: Prospects & PotentialLaden by the hope of a virtuous future, Sri Lanka teems with infinite possibilities and is preparing itself to become a destination of choice. Since the end of the civil war in mid-2009, the country�s economy has been on a strong growth trajectory led by determined rebuilding measures, surging tourism and increased investor confidence. After a sharp decline in growth during 2008-2009, it expanded rapidly by 8% between 2010 and 2012, and a further 10% is expected in 2013. This makes it the second fastest growing economy in emerging Asia, after China. Low interest rates and moderate levels of inflation witness to boost trade and industry in the medium term, and the government is also placing increased emphasis on carrying out large infrastructure projects, which will not only improve communications in established areas, but also unlock the hidden potential of other locations. With several local and domestic investors looking to capitalize on a promising economic growth environment and improving infrastructure, real estate has witnessed an upward trend in demand and pricing. The recent upswing in the service sector from finance, tourism, and the IT/ITES industry in Colombo, has triggered a healthy demand for residential space in the Greater Colombo real estate market. The development of premium condominium projects is most prominent in the Central Business District; and sub-divided developments, row houses and villas in the peripheral suburbs have emerged as the preferred choice for middle-income buyers. The demand for commercial office space is driven by growth in the banking, IT/ITES and tourism sectors. While Banking, Financial Services and Insurance have an established presence with captive properties across Colombo, IT/ITES is emerging as an attractive sector. The Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority figures show that tourism forms 0.6% of the country�s total GDP, and is one of the fastest growing sectors in the economy, growing by39.8% in 2010. With the Government setting the target for 2.5 million tourist arrivals by 2016, hotels and resorts are set to mushroom in tourist destinations. (Source-Jones Lang LaSalle)
