A high-level German Government delegation will visit Sri Lanka in March to explore investment opportunities in the country, Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said.

The German Government delegation is expected to arrive in the country in the latter part of March to assess the investment climate and possible avenues of investment in Sri Lanka, Karunanayake said.

The Sri Lankan Government held an Investor Forum and Road Show in Berlin last week during President Maithripala Sirisena’s visit to Germany.

The President expressing Sri Lanka’s interest in attracting Foreign Direct Investment to the country to build a competitive economy invited German entrepreneurs to explore invest opportunities in Sri Lanka.

“We want to form the core of a competitive modern economy. Sri Lanka today is ready for business and our economic transition is set in motion,” said President Sirisena, addressing the Sri Lanka-Germany business forum.

During the President’s visit, the German Foreign Minister said his country would send a high level business delegation to Sri Lanka shortly.
