Early this year, the Research and Markets website (https://www.researchandmarkets.com/) offered the Sri Lanka Real Estate Market Report 2021 which provided insights into key areas. It covered aspects such as the luxury & semi luxury apartments market and how the sector had shown considerable resilience in the face of challenges following the pandemic; in the next two to three years, the demand for such apartments are expected to be more than the supply leading to a seller’s market. As part of this growing sector, it should be noted that mixed-use developments such as Cinnamon Life are also driving the demand for luxury apartments in Colombo, the nation’s commercial capital.
Amidst this promising real estate landscape, the Sri Lanka Investment Forum 2021 was held from 7th to 9th June 2021; it was hosted on a virtual platform and highlighted the capital market and foreign direct investment opportunities for those looking to invest in Sri Lanka. The event featured sector-specific sessions, panel discussions on the macro-economic environment, presentations on investment projects and one-on-one sessions between investors and government authorities / companies.
