Foreign investment in Sri Lankan stocks hit all-time high in 2017
Nov 22, 2017 16:35 PM GMT+0530 | 0 Comment(s)



ECONOMYNEXT – Foreign investment in Sri Lankan companies listed on the Colombo Stock Exchange in 2017 has hit an all-time high during a year, with Rs105.1 billion in foreign purchases so far this year, passing the record Rs104.7 billion in 2014.

The Colombo Stock Exchange said in a statement said the development follows signs of renewed foreign interest in the stock market in mid-2017.

During this period foreign buying doubled to that in the first half of 2016 and recorded an all-time high for foreign purchases in the first half of a calendar year.

“Such foreign purchases have contributed to a net foreign purchase figure of Rs18.9 billion year-to-date, a figure that is substantial compared to foreign activity in 2015/16,” the CSE said.

“Growing foreign interest in the market has also contributed to a 30% improvement in the Daily Average Turnover, where the figure has improved to Rs955 million (year-to-date) from Rs737 million in 2016.”

The CSE said foreign investors have been quick to identify buying opportunities in Sri Lankan stocks.

“An attractive market valuation (P/E), encouraging performance among listed entities, dividend payments, and capital gains tax exemptions offered to share transactions are considered to be defining factors in attracting the level of foreign investor interest the market has witnessed in 2017.”

CSE’s Head of Market Development Niroshan Wijesundere said that improving levels of foreign investor involvement has provided the CSE an opportunity to create awareness on the stock market across all investor segments.

The market continues to trade at a discount compared to regional peers and offers further opportunities for investors - with a market P/E recorded at 10.72 as of today and a majority of listed companies trading below book value, he said.

“The macroeconomic outlook continuing to improve will also offer both foreign and local investors further confidence in the Sri Lankan stock market,” Wijesundere added.

The CSE in association with the Securities and Exchange Commission of Sri Lanka (SEC) resumed a concentrated effort to create awareness on the opportunities in the capital market in key foreign markets this year, through ‘Invest Sri Lanka’ Forums in Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and most recently in New York.

Foreign Institutional Investors and Sri Lankans living abroad present at these events indicated a sense of optimism on the investment opportunities surrounding progressive economic reforms presently being implemented in the country, the CSE said.

Foreign purchases in the stock market originating from Australia in a particular year recorded an all-time high in 2017, with a figure of Rs651 million by the week that ended 17th November 2017, it said.

“A strong community of individuals with a Sri Lankan origin eager to look at new Sri Lankan investment opportunities and the celebration of 70 years of diplomatic ties between Sri Lanka and Australia presented the CSE with a unique opportunity to promote the capital market in Australia this year.”

The CSE and SEC have also launched an island-wide local retail investor focused Investor Forum campaign to create awareness on the record foreign investment and the potential opportunities in the market for local investors, it said.

The CSE and the Colombo Stock Brokers Association are also presently conducting a series of events presenting investment research on companies featured on the S&P SL 20 Index, to an audience of Local Institutional Investors, another key investor segment in the Sri Lankan stock market.

Foreign direct investment (FDI) is an investment made by a firm or individual in one country into business interests located in another country. Generally, FDI takes place when an investor establishes foreign business operations or acquires foreign business assets, including establishing ownership or controlling interest in a foreign company.
Foreign investment involves capital flows from one country to another, granting extensive ownership stakes in domestic companies and assets. Foreign investment denotes that foreigners have an active role in management as a part of their investment

Targets suggest Govt. aiming for higher growth than previously witnessed
Plans to keep National Export Strategy
Stronger focus on value-added agri products, boat building and shipbuilding industries
Exporters told to convey issues to EDB, report expected soon
Minister assures no disruption to projects in run-up to General Elections


By Charumini de Silva


Tourism Minister Prasanna Ranatunga - Pic by Shehan Gunasekara
The Government is keen to increase Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) to $ 2.5 billion and exports to $ 13.5 billion this year aided by improved policy stability, business confidence, tax cuts and a wide-ranging stimulus package.

While final data for 2019 FDI and export performances is still pending, the 2020 target suggests expectations of growth higher than what has been seen in the preceding years.

In the first 11 months of 2019, exports amounted to $ 11 billion, marginally up by 0.8% from a year earlier. FDI as per Central Bank data was $ 772 million in the first 11 months, down from $ 1.6 billion in 2018.



“We are confident of increasing both exports and foreign investments,” Industrial Export and Investment Promotion Minister Prasanna Ranatunga told the Daily FT.

He said the Government led by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa would continue with the National Export Strategy (NES) to enhance performance.

“There is no need to change the NES because it was put together after much consultation with experts in the field. Just because the Government changed, I don’t think this should be discontinued. However, considering the global trends in trade and exports, if there are amendments to be made we will do it,” the Minister stressed.



He said the Government would also explore new markets and products, while also looking at strengthening the existing export basket.

“We want to help the existing exporters first and encourage new enterprises to reach markets. The Government is confident of achieving a $ 13.5 billion export target this year,” Ranatunga added.

The Minister also said the Government hoped to focus on agri-based value-added exports and the boat building and shipbuilding industries as they believed there was high potential to grow these two industries.



He also pointed out that he had discussions with the Export Development Board (EDB) and exporters and gave instructions to convey their challenges to the EDB so solutions could be sought. The report is expected within the next few weeks.

The Minister noted that he had offered leadership to establish a strong foundation for all the institutions under his portfolio to be able to continue projects even in the run-up to the General Elections, with expectations to upscale them following the polls.

The president is a thinker outside the box, and a practical i presume. same goes with MR. Much appreciated for them for taking a bold step towards tax cut. This will ensure more earnings and reinvestment back into the economy.

I hope this will re-kindle the economy back and higher growth. When there is growth people will have more money in their hands. This will reduce NPL and reversal of the provisions already made.
Lets ensure that we are in the game, and not off the game like some.

Feb 15, Colombo: 

Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa requested the country’s legal community to assist in promoting local and foreign investment by eliminating bureaucracy and excessive regulation.

Addressing the National Law Conference 2020 in Negombo Friday (14), President Rajapaksa said that the legal profession is capable of providing wide support to create a simple, efficient and streamlined structure to facilitate businesses.

The annual National Law Conference 2020 organized by the Bar Association of Sri Lanka was inaugurated by the President yesterday at the Jetwing Hotel in Negombo. The theme of this year's conference is "Sri Lanka, a Financial and Commerce Hub- Vistas, Challenges and Opportunities."

Delivering a speech at the conference, the President said rapidly developing technologies through a wide range of sectors are revolutionizing global commerce and industry and stressed that Sri Lanka must move forward with that transformation.

The President also stressed the need to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the new changes for faster economic development.
“With rapid technological change Asia has become the world's most important market. The emergence of Asia should be used to a maximum for the economic development of our country. We need to develop short, medium and long-term strategies,” the President said stressing that his government is fully committed to achieve this objective.

Highlighting that significant tax concessions have already been provided to companies in the IT sector, the President said the government is encouraging local and foreign companies to invest in the industry and create more employment opportunities.

He said the government intends to make the necessary amendments in order to accelerate national development to the full potential of the economy. Improving the business regulatory system is also essential as it will facilitate businesses and help prevent irregularities and misuse.

The President said the time has come to consider the efficiency and the affordability of law enforcement in the process of administering justice in the country
“The ordinary people of the country should have the opportunity to resolve their disputes quickly and inexpensively. Delay in the administration of justice is considered a denial of justice. It frustrates interested parties in the process of administering justice. Therefore, the time has come for the judiciary, government and the legal sector to come up with a comprehensive solution to make Sri Lanka's legal system a better place in the world,” the President said.

“If the executive or legislature interferes with the legal process and the judiciary, it is detrimental to democracy. It is equally important that the judiciary does not overly interfere in the actions of the executive and the legislature. The Executive and the Legislature are elected by the people through a democratic process. The Executive in particular has a mandate to meet the needs of the people. Therefore, it is important that the judiciary does not interfere with the development efforts of the Executive for the well-being and prosperity of the people,” President Rajapaksa emphasized.

President Rajapaksa said he expects the full support of the legal community to support the Government's drive to create a prosperous future.

The “National Law Congress 2020” statement was presented to the President at the inaugural event.
Speaker Karu Jayasuriya, Justice Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva, former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, former Justice Ministers Wijayadasa Rajapaksa and Prof. GL Peiris, Attorney General Dappula de Livera and the President of the Bar Association Kalinga Indatissa were present on the occasion.
