Doing business in Sri Lanka

Private and corporate investors looking for information about business rules and opportunity in Sri Lanka can contact the Economic and Commercial section of this Embassy.

A first look is due to the Joint Relation. This half-yearly report, drawn up by the Commercial Section and the ICE (Italian Institute for Foreign Trade) Office in New Delhi, is a useful outlook of the Srilankan economy current situation. Macro-economic status, market opportunities, obstacles to foreign trade and investments, strategies and promotional initiatives of the "System Italy" are the key points analysed.  

In order to obtain detailed information about Srilankan markets and companies, it is warmly recommended to contact the local Chambers of Commerce and producers associations. An exhaustive list of them can be looked up visiting this website:

Sri Lanka - Italy Business Council

Inaugurated under the aegis of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce in 1998, the main objective of the Sri Lanka - Italy Business Council is to promote investment, trade and joint venture between Sri Lanka and Italy.
Main objectives of the Council are also to exchange information on trade and investment with the appropriate bodies in Italy and to conduct joint meetings with Italian business organisations in Sri Lanka and in Italy.

The groundwork for the formation of the Council commenced after a proposal was made in 1997 to the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, by the then-Ambassador of Italy to Sri Lanka, Maurizio Teucci. Since its inception, the Council has endeavored to support its membership which has grown to include companies involved in diverse sectors of trade and services as well as NGO's. The Executive Committee is represented by members of these sectors. Meetings are attended also by representatives from the Embassy of Italy, the European Union, the Export Development Board and the Department of Commerce, as invited observers.
