Many incentives for local and foreign investments in Sri Lanka are included in 2011 Budget proposals tabled in Parliament by President Mahinda Rajapaksa, said Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa when a delegation of Belgian investors met him at his Ministry Monday.
The delegation included 50 representatives from 40 Belgium Companies involved in construction, fisheries, agriculture, gem, information technology, water supply, textile and tourism industries.
Minister Rajapaksa revealed that many Belgian investors stayed back in Sri Lanka at the height of the conflict when investors from certain other countries abandoned Sri Lanka and said he was thankful to the Belgian investors for expressing such solidarity with Sri Lanka.
