Exports continue to grow

Earnings from merchandise exports increased by 10.24% Year-on-Year (YoY) to $ 1,213.7 million in August 2022, as per the data released by the Sri Lanka Customs. This was mainly due to the increase in earnings from exports of apparel and textiles.

Export Development Board (EDB) Chairman/Chief Executive Suresh D. de Mel congratulated the exporters for their great effort in increasing foreign exchange earnings for Sri Lanka during this critical period. He also thanked the staff of the EDB and other supporting agencies for their untiring support to facilitate exports under highly disruptive circumstances.
