The Complexities of Importing into Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has had a Tech leap forward in the last half a decade which has fuelled a demand for scalable start-ups and propelled the development of Tech resources. Trade opportunities in Sri Lanka reflect the global trends of developing nations, and so, there is a vast arena for growth in the data processing space. The region, however, is subject to rigid customs, approval, and compliance requirements that can make import into the country a challenge.
