"International trade has slowed down, oil prices are likely to pick up, shifting US economic policies, and elections in key EU states. Amidst the global shifts, Sri Lanka is projected to grow modestly in 2017, with new hopes on FDI flows, a mix bag of prospects in key export products and markets, and domestic challenges stemming from difficult policy reforms," the Chamber said.
"What is the outlook for growth, trade, and investment in 2017? What are our forecasts on key macro indicators? What are the implications of new US President Trump on the global economy and Sri Lanka?"
