Sri Lanka is leveraging on ICT exports to achieve its target of 20 billion US dollars by 2020. A new support initiative by the Netherlands is set to elevate Lankan software exporters to the latest technological developments.

EDB Chairman Bandula Egodage stated that "The Mahinda Chinthana policy stresses the importance of ICT as the way forward in exports, specially as we work towards the 20 billion US dollars export goal by 2020.

He added that we earned 719 million dollars from this sector in 2013, and that the government is highly focused on the ICT sector as a forex earner and driver of exports.
