Sri Lanka's export sector reached a significant milestone by surpassing the 10 billion dollar export revenue mark for the first time last year.

The export sector recorded 10.4 billion dollars in 2011 representing a growth of 22.3 percent.

The sector which faced a setback in 2009 due to global financial crisis rebounded strongly in 2010.

The improved performance of the export sector in 2011 was driven by two major sectors of agricultural and industrial products which recorded 10.6 percent and 27.3 percent growth rates respectively.
