Current Status Of The Construction Industry

Sri Lankan Construction Industry continues to play an important role in the country's economy. The industry has grown significantly by 12.0 percent during the first quarter of 2016, when compared with the first quarter of 2015. In its quest to make Sri Lanka a regional hub, our Government has embarked on massive development Programs . With mega development projects such as Megapolis & Western province development, Galle port development, development of Sampur Industrial Zone and construction of Central Expressway, in the pipeline, the industry is poised to witness exponential growth in the coming years. In addition, driven by these large scale infrastructure development projects, Colombo will continue to experience urban migration towards the city.

This will result in more luxury apartments, hotels and shopping centres being constructed in the city and suburbs. All these will present our construction organizations with numerous opportunities. Construction Expo 2017, which is being held in this backdrop will serve as a launching pad for the construction companies to identify new partners, demonstrate new technologies and position themselves to benefit from the above mentioned opportunities.
