Sri Lanka is a very different place today from a decade ago.

Did you know that ...?

  • Sri Lanka has one of the lowest income tax rates in Asia?
  • Sri Lanka is extremely investor friendly for new businesses?
  • Sri Lanka has one of the lowest violent crime rates in the world?
  • Colombo is improving fast and becoming a very attractive place to live and work?
  • You could live in Colombo and go to Galle for dinner?
  • Sri Lanka's rapidly building a full expressway network?

Having being restrained by the shackles of a 30-year domestic conflict until 2009, the country is now surging ahead. The economy has shown remarkable growth, tourism is booming and infrastructure & urban development are on high gear.

Astute investors, entrepreneurs and professionals are getting in early to take maximum opportunity. What’s more, many Sri Lankans abroad are now thinking about moving back because there is “no place like home!” and “Its not a crazy idea anymore”.

Returning or moving to Sri Lanka will leave you with a thousand unanswered questions!

  • Where will I live?
  • How about schooling for my children?
  • How about health care and emergency care?
  • What is the work culture like?
  • How expensive are cars really?
  • How about the traffic?
  • How about safety and security?
  • How much will I get paid?
