On 5 August, Sri Lanka elected a New Government with a two-third majority. As the engine of growth, the private sector is expected to play a pivotal role in the much-needed economic revival of Sri Lanka – in a challenging global environment post-COVID-19. To do so, the Government needs to ensure an enabling environment for the private sector to perform. Hence the need to understand what businesses expect from the new Government.
This article is based on multiple inputs sources:
- Responses from 200 of Sri Lanka’s top business leaders – to a quick survey on “What is your No. 1 expectation from the newly-elected Government?”
- MTI’s research, thought leadership and experience – benefiting from our expertise of working on assignments in 47 countries over the last 23 years.
- Extracts from MTI’s previous study on ‘Business Impact of Post COVID-19’ – based on interviews with 100 of Sri Lanka’s top business leaders.
- The respondents (for both above) include Chairpersons, Directors, CEOs and CxOs from blue-chip companies, multi-nationals, large local conglomerates and industry majors representing a diverse range of industries.
