About Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is an island nation located along major maritime trade routes in the Indian Ocean. Following democratic elections in 2015, the end of 26 years of conflict in 2009 and a decade of recovery from a devastating tsunami in 2004, the country has entered a new era.
Sri Lanka now focuses on strengthening its democracy, promoting reconciliation and fostering sustainable economic growth.
USAID works with the Government and the people of Sri Lanka to help all Sri Lankans benefit from nationwide progress.
