Post COVID-19 economic growth and development are a priority for the Sri Lankan government and domestic private sector investment is essential to achieve those goals, the U.S. Ambassador Aliana B. Teplitz said.

“We continue to believe that, again, a private sector-led approach is going to be really essential. We need the finances that come with the private sector and I would argue, also, the innovation and flexibility that come with the private sector, Ambassador Teplitz said speaking at the 2020 AmCham AGM on September 29 .

Referring to remarks made by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa in his speech to the UN that poverty alleviation through an agri-based production economy is a major goal of the government, Ambassador Teplitz said they have been working with AmCham to support these goals and with other businesses.
