In the month of June 2016, the Board of Investment of Sri Lanka has signed 46 agreements of a total value of $ 982 million estimated investment. 

The BOI said these projects cover a wide range of sectors such as manufacturing, construction, mixed development, hotel, mini hydro power, trading house, solar power, apparel, research and development and education. In addition, once they start operating, these projects will generate an estimated 8,000 new direct employment opportunities.

BOI Chairman Upul Jayasuriya formally signed the agreements with the investors on behalf of the BOI. BOI has focused on fast racking investment facilitation, resulting in a high number of projects being approved. 

Apartment complexes: As Colombo develops very fast the demand for apartments will correspondingly increase. Hence 11 agreements have been signed to set up new apartment complexes. The projects will change the Colombo skyline. A total estimated investment in this sector would be around $ 259 million and it will generate 900 direct job opportunities. 

These 11 projects include Arum Developers Ltd., Barrington Global Ltd., Vivesta Constructions Ltd., KSK Construction Ltd., Blue Ocean Legend Ltd., STK Quickshowa Ltd., City Square Projects Ltd., Capital Trust Residencies Ltd., Pearl Residency Ltd., Decent Homes Japan Ltd. and Capital Trust Residencies Four Ltd.

A total number of 10 new agreements have been signed to set up various manufacturing projects such as health devices, boat building, pharmaceutical products, granite tiles, organic fertiliser and soft toys etc. An estimated investment of these 10 agreements would be $ 296 million and generate 2,400 employment opportunities.

Trading house: Trading houses specialise in facilitating transactions between a home country and foreign countries. A trading house is an exporter, importer and also a trader that purchases and sells products for other businesses. Trading houses provide a service for businesses that want international trade experts to receive or deliver goods or services.

Three new agreements have been signed to set up mini hydro power projects in Mathale, Meegahakiula and Haguranketha. The electricity generated by the mini hydro power plants will be supplied to the National Grid.

Ecas Kiula Ltd., Loggaloya Hydro Power Ltd. and Marj Company Ltd. have signed agreements with an investment of $ 10 million with 55 new job opportunities.

Vydexa Lanka Power Corporation Ltd. signed an agreement to set up a 10 MW solar power plant with an investment of $ 15 million. Glovtech Innovation Ltd. signed an agreement to set up a research and development lab for glove technology. The facility will be located at Munagama, Induruliyedda.

In 2016 the BOI laid the foundation for a higher quantum of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the years to come. This was achieved by the identification and implementation by the BOI’s management of ways by the improvement of service quality towards the investor with the objective of making Sri Lanka a highly-competitive, business-friendly destination. - See more at: http://www.ft.lk/article/554264/BOI-signs-record-46-new--agreements-worth---982-m-in-June#sthash.dNkyQh9C.dpuf
