Surprisingly Sri Lanka most valuable asset is it's vastly underutilized land bank. Sri Lanka's land mass is approximately 65,000 square kilometers of which 4% represents water. If we value the land at nominal price of Rs 10,000 per perch, total value Sri Lanka land would be approximately US$ 250bn. If we can utilize this land to get 10% Return On Assets (ROA) per annum, we could easily generate further US$ 25bn, which is more than the total market capitalization of the CSE.
Question can be asked as to why we are not utilizing and generating more revenue from most valuable but underutilized asset of the country. This is a very vast subject, your views and opinions are welcome!
