Mr Cabraal said, “We have seen rapid post war development in the country mostly in the Southern and Eastern coastal belts in terms of tourism related infrastructure development.

With the Galle expressway nearing completion, it has made way for new business opportunities in this locality. It’s pleasing to see an international Bank such as HSBC establishing its presence here and bringing international standards to Galle.”

Nick Nicolaou, Chief Executive Officer of HSBC Sri Lanka and Maldives said, “This is a strategic location in the Southern Province and will no doubt allow us to assist in the Government’s economic strategy to support economic growth, be it travel and tourism, agriculture, infrastructure or manufacturing as well as larger infrastructure projects.”
