Sri Lanka is a beautiful Asian island with a strong industries in tourism and investment. The Sri Lankan population stands at approx. 20 million citizens and is organised as a democratic socialist system, with a president and parliament. In addition, the citizen base remains surprisingly affluent, well-educated and experiences a strong standard of living, making the nation a vital trade partner for not just European companies, but businesses from the world over. Sri Lanka considers itself a non-aligned country, with strong connections to the United States and its strategic location has made it a strong trading partner for centuries. Currently, Sri Lanka's economy is still strongly focused in agriculture, producing traditional plantation crops such as tea, rubber, cinnamon and sugar. The nation is also attempting to shift its focus to more modern commodities, such as financial markets, manufacturing, clothing and food production. The current population mainly reside in the largest city Colombo, which home to over 5 million people. An internal problem for Sri Lanka is getting goods from Colombo elsewhere in the country, so if you book a tracked courier, all the costs, bar any customs duty owed, is paid for upfront and the recipient can follow the parcel, which makes purchasing goods online from foreign shores an attractive prospect to consumers in Sri Lanka. While the current penetration of internet is less than 30 percent, it is growing at a fast rate. Not only are people looking to send parcels that contain goods bought online, Sri Lankans live around the globe and have the need to send presents or personal goods home, which is another thriving market in terms of package delivery.
