  • Why Join AmCham?
  • AmCham Sri Lanka provides significant benefits to its members in a number of ways. These include regular opportunities for interaction and networking with other members of the business community, as well as officials from the U.S. Embassy (Sri Lanka), international business links via trade delegations, US Trade Fairs and information sharing between other AmChams in the region. In addition, AmCham publishes a quarterly newsletter, 'AmCham News', along with a comprehensive annual membership directory.

    AmCham acts as a strong and influential voice for advocating the commercial interests of its members. The Chamber supports member companies by helping them to conduct business freely, facilitating contacts and dialogue with both the Sri Lankan and U.S. Governments and allied institutions.

    For example, the Chamber participates in the annual Washington 'Door knock', an opportunity for the Chamber delegation to visit with U.S. government officials on Capitol Hill and discuss issues pertaining to the Chamber, as well as the country. Relationships are also maintained with the Sri Lankan Ministries of Finance and Trade and Commerce, the Board of Investment, the Asia Pacific Council of American Chambers (APCAC) and the US Chamber of Commerce.
