Sri Lanka is a small open economy dependent on trade to drive economic growth. In the past decade, Sri Lanka’strade to GDP ratio has slipped substantially behind peer countries. Yet, with its strategic geographic location, SriLanka is uniquely positioned to become an attractive Hub for international commerce in this region; being at thecrossroads of trade between East and West and at the doorstep of a dynamic consumer market in India.
A key feature of becoming such a dynamic trade Hub is efficient and modern trade facilitation. The Ceylon Chamber’s National Agenda Committee on Logistics and Transport recommends the implementation of an e-Hub in order to facilitate the seamless flow of information between all stakeholders directly and peripherally connected with the supply chain to, from, and through Sri Lanka’s borders.
