The 14th annual Sri Lanka Economic Summit which is scheduled to be held from July 9th to 11th  in Colombo will have one of its sessions discussing about Sri Lanka's export strategy.

The Government policy framework has targeted to raise the rate of growth in exports to double that of GDP growth, but exports as a % of GDP have halved from year 2000 to 2012.

The share of exports of Sri Lanka as a percentage of world exports has also declined over the years to reach 0.06% by 2011.

Leading economists and key exporters have been invited to discuss and identify changes required to current strategy to rejuvenate the exports sector in Sri Lanka.
