Enhancing Export Competitiveness through Trade Facilitation: the Experience of Sri Lanka
In: Impact of Trade Facilitation on Export Competitiveness: a Regional Perspective
In line with the liberalization of the economy, the Government of Sri Lanka undertook several measures to introduce accompanying policies that would facilitate trade and integrate the economy with the global economy. Although Sri Lanka's competitiveness has increased over the years, with a Global Competitiveness Index ranking of 70 for 2007-2008 (out of 131 countries), the current status of transport and infrastructure in the country has been a significant disadvantage in terms of export competitiveness.
