“After a meeting held this week with the President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, the Chairman of the Board of Investment of Sri Lanka reiterated his desire to step down from his post.
The Chairman further said that he was grateful to the government for placing the highest confidence in him and the Board and for requesting them to continue to serve and contribute effectively to promote foreign investments to help the post-COVID economic transformation of Sri Lanka.
