Our Work

In recent years, Sri Lanka has experienced steady economic growth, achieving middle-income status in 2010 and a gross domestic product growth rate of 6.5 percent in 2015. The 2015 elections resulted in a sweeping reform agenda that is ushering in a new chapter in Sri Lanka’s history.

Despite steps forward, significant disparities in income and access to basic services persist across the country. Post-conflict issues permeate society and hinder development.

In this context, USAID promotes economic growth, advances reconciliation in conflict-affected communities and supports good governance and the implementation of democratic reforms.
