“Sri Lanka can learn from Hyderabad to strategize its economic turnaround’’ MTI
According to MTI Consulting, Sri Lanka is facing a ‘Perfect Storm’, a concurrence of multiple socio-economic challenges that has dealt an unprecedented blow to the country. “This is also a great opportunity to dismantle incremental legacy strategies. Instead, go ‘Ground Zero’ and approach it as building an entirely new economic model,” said Hilmy Cader, CEO of MTI Consulting.
