London Stock Exchange to invest in Sri Lanka
A high-powered business delegation from the London Stock Exchange (LSE) will meet Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe this week to discuss and finalise an investment agreement.
The discussions to be held in Colombo on Wednesday will be based on the setting up of a global IT support centre that provides IT services to stock exchanges globally.
The support centre to be set up at the TRACE Expert City in Maradana will create high-end technology jobs for Sri Lankans which are equivalent to two or three other similar jobs – in terms of intensity and skill level.
“The investment will create a global platform for Sri Lanka’s tech talent,” an official connected with the deal told the Sunday Observer.
