“Sri Lanka – An Export Hub driven by Innovation and Investment”
Through an inclusive and consultative process, Sri Lanka’s industry leaders and public sector representatives defined the NES vision: “Sri Lanka – an export hub driven by innovation and investment”. This vision is underlined by four national objectives, which provide the overall framework for the prioritization of reforms, institutional alignment, market development and the selection of focus sectors and TSFs. The interconnectedness of the NES vision, strategic objectives and the focus sectors are depicted in the infographic below.
The private sector, including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), considers this objective fundamental to address challenges faced by Sri Lankan enterprises, reduce costs of doing business and improve export competitiveness
This strategic objective focuses on strengthening two key trade support functions that deliver trade information and promotional support, and quality compliance services, both necessary to increase exporters’ performance in destination markets.
This objective is critical for Sri Lanka to become a recognized hub serving Asia and the world. It aims to create the conditions for Sri Lanka to leverage its enormous shipping and logistics potential by strengthening its infrastructure, improving services and attracting the investment and skills required for sustainable growth.
This strategic objective will create the conditions and implement targeted solutions to develop visionary and emerging export sectors. Established export sectors such as apparel, tea, rubber and coconut products have proven their ability to compete in world markets.View NES Focus Sectors
