Sri Lanka: Next Trade and Investment Destination in Asia

17-05-2018 15:00 à 20:00


The Brussels Chamber of commerce encourages all opportunities to expand your business abroad. In this framework we would like to draw your attention on the following invitation coming from the Embassy of Sri Lanka. We are looking forward to receive your registration.

We are pleased to inform you that the Embassy of Sri Lanka in collaboration with Brussels Invest & Export (BIE), Walloon Agency for Export and Foreign Investment (AWEX)| and Brussels Enterprises, Commerce and Industry (BECI), is organizing an Interactive Business Forum, entitled, “Sri Lanka: Next Trade and In-vestment Destination in Asia”, which is to further enhance the trade and investment cooperation between Bel-gium and Sri Lanka.

The Forum followed by B2B Meetings and networking dinner is scheduled to take place at the premises of the Official Residence of Sri Lanka (Avenue Lequime 52, 1640 Rhode- Saint-Genese) on 17th May 2018 from 15:00 hrs to 20.00 hrs.
Sri Lanka and Belgium has been enjoying cordial trade relations for many years. This relationship has been instrumental in attracting many Belgian investors to Sri Lanka since the 1970’s. As far as trade is concerned, Belgium has become the 6th largest destination for Sri Lanka’s exports to the world.

The seminar will also provide you to listen to testimonials by Belgian companies who are successfully operating in Sri Lanka.  

We are confident that this Forum will further pave the way for your future business activities with Sri Lanka enjoying the benefit of the EU GSP Plus Concessions (granted by the EU in 2017) and to access neighbouring markets such as India and Pakistan utilizing the Free Trade Agreements that Sri Lanka has signed with those countries.
