Sri Lanka, with its attractive interest rates and warm and friendly people, is exactly the kind of market we are looking for as it mirrors so many of the traits we look for in business partners. We are very excited about the future and look forward to working closely with Asia Wealth Management with whom we have an excellent working relationship."
