About Sri Lanka
The proverbial pearl of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka is a magnificent country that’s steeped in history. The rich culture and widely praised social values bear the profound influence of the Buddhist philosophy. The nature’s endowments, the strategic location on a major trade route with natural harbours and the legendary hospitality of the islanders were instrumental to Sri Lanka’s being established as a major trading hub in the Indian ocean centuries ago.
Today, with a booming export economy, Sri Lanka is well on her way to become a global sourcing destination. The country’s participation in Expo 2020 Dubai, one of the world’s largest and most significant trade shows, will prove vital to fulfilling our export ambitions. With this awareness, Sri Lanka will strive to harness the fullest potential of Expo 2020 Dubai.
