Workshop with Leading Industrialists and Investors in Sri Lanka

The Asian Development Bank hosted a consultation workshop in Colombo, Sri Lanka, on 2 November 2016, with the private sector to seek feedback on Colombo-Trincomalee Economic Corridor (CTEC).

The Workshop presented 

  • The concept of economic corridor strategy and its implementation in Sri Lanka; and 
  • Key findings of the analytical work done on CTEC.

Around 40 participants from a variety of manufacturing sectors participated and shared their views on the ongoing CTEC study. Participants have emphasized the need to address issues and challenges faced by the private sector to ensure effective development of CTEC.
