Thailand- or Asean-based companies looking to enter the lucrative Indian and Pakistani markets are being encouraged to set up operations in Sri Lanka to make use of the favourable free trade agreements it has with the two countries.

President Mahinda Rajapaks told a gathering of business leaders during his official visit to Thailand last week that Sri Lanka was a great destination for investors, noting that investor protection provisions were enshrined in the constitution.

Despite the potential for tourism and leisure business, Sri Lanka is also pitching itself as a place that can also be used as a hub for manufacturing to export to India, Pakistan and other markets.
