SLT-MOBITEL met with U.S. Ambassador to Sri Lanka Julie J. Chung and other U.S. officials to discuss the investment opportunities in Sri Lanka for U.S. based-businesses.
The discussion was led by the company’s Group Chairman Rohan Fernando, Group Chief Executive Officer Lalith Seneviratne, and other senior officials from SLT-MOBITEL.
During the meeting, the telecommunications sector was identified to be an important area for U.S. investors, as it has been able to keep critical industries and services connected, especially in the face of unprecedented national challenges in the last three years. Another high-potential investment area identified is Sri Lanka’s digital economy, which is also a national priority.
Commenting on the meeting, Rohan Fernando – Group Chairman, Sri Lanka Telecom, said, “As a national entity invested in the progress of Sri Lanka, our goal is to seek like-minded partners. This meeting was an important first step in encouraging more US-based businesses to invest in Sri Lanka. Building a diverse, multi-faceted investor community in the country is critical. With our superior connectivity solutions, ready-to-go technology platforms, advanced network backbone services, and digital infrastructure capabilities, we are poised to be a high-potential Sri Lankan partner for any enterprise investor in the world.”
