    BOI promotes Sri Lanka through Japanese Mega Banks Featured

    August 11, 2015

    A delegation headed by Chairman of BOI Mr. Upul Jayasuriya consisting of Mr. Dilip S Samarasinghe, Director (Media & Publicity) of BOI, Mr. Keizo Tsuchiya JICA Advisor to BOI and Mr. Dhammika Basnayake, Assistant Director (Promotion), held discussions with two Japanese Mega Banks with whom BOI had entered into agreements in 2014.   Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi and Mizuho Bank signed agreements in Colombo with the BOI before and during the visit of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to Colombo in 2014.


    Discussion with Banks centered on what steps would be necessary to create an environment that should be conductive to setting up representative offices that would take care of the banking needs of Japanese enterprises in Sri Lanka.  This is also important for promoting investment from Japan.


    The two Banks also play an important role in promoting Sri Lanka for investment among their client base in Japan and overseas which include leading individuals and enterprises.  Both Japanese Banks also have helped co-ordinate recent promotional missions of the BOI in Japan.
