Sri Lanka: The Hidden Gem for Outsourcing

Why Choose Sri Lanka as your Competitive Outsourcing Destination?

Sri Lanka is a South Asian Island nation located in the Indian Ocean off the southeastern coast of India, known as the “Pearl of the Indian Ocean” and the “Teardrop of India”. Full of romantic landscapes, stirring mountains, lush green tea gardens, and golden beaches, the island is nothing short of magnificent.


Sri Lanka has been awarded as the Offshore Destination of the Year by the National Outsourcing Association U.K. successively in 2013 and 2014 and ranked 14th in the global services location index, calling the country “a hidden gem for outsourcing,” according to Kearney. The country also won Delivery Destination of the Year, announced by GSA (Global Sourcing Association) in 2019.


While it has long been a popular travel destination, Sri Lanka is also a suitable place to outsource.
