Advocacy

AmCham supports the collective interests of its members by proposing changes to improve the environment for international businesses in Sri Lanka. Through an active advocacy program, AmCham represents these interests to both the Sri Lankan and American governments. AmCham also contributes to the shaping of public opinion through its relations with fellow business organizations, academics and think tanks, the press, and many other stakeholder groups.

Trade Delegations

The objectives of these missions are to explore business opportunities, provide valuable fact-finding services, and assist participants to establish networks and make business and government contacts throughout Asia. AmCham Sri Lanka also receives trade delegations from our neighbors in the Asia-Pacific region.
