ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka’s investment promotion agency, Board of Investment (BoI), has signed an agreement with Singapore’s Surbana Jurong to set up a state-owned consultancy company to better attract investments, a spokesman said.
Parliamentary Reforms and Mass Media Minister Gayantha Karunathilaka said the government has identified the need to make the island a more attractive investment destination with more accurate assessments of its potential.
“The establishment of a government-owned consultancy company would be suitable for this purpose,” he told a news conference.
Surbana provides a wide range of services including city planning and designing, project management and facilities management.
