The American Chamber of Commerce in Sri Lanka held a roundtable discussion yesterday with US Department of State, Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs Acting Assistant Secretary Alice G. Wells and US Ambassador to Sri Lanka and the Maldives Alaina B. Teplitz, as well as other key officials from the US Embassy and AmCham members.

The roundtable discussion held with AMCHAM member companies, focused on opportunities for greater economic collaboration, highlighted feedback from the private sector on current business challenges faced, and explored opportunities to expand partnerships, investments and two-way trade under the Indo-Pacific strategy, specifically between the United States and Sri Lanka.  Founded in 1992, the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Sri Lanka celebrates 27 years of bringing together US companies as well as local companies doing business with the US. AmCham is seen as one of the most dynamic and influential business chambers in the country, promoting activities that would encourage and stimulate investment by US companies, supporting the ongoing business operations of its members and encouraging bilateral trade between the US and Sri Lanka.
