Sri Lanka Country Profile

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.
