Jim Rogers: Peacetime Sri Lanka will offer better returns

American investor and financial commentator Jim Rogers told Bloomberg that if the government spends "money on infrastructure and developing productive assets, then Sri Lanka’s strengths will become even stronger given that the war is over.”

The Ministry of Finance has said it will focus next year’s budget on rebuilding areas liberated from the Tamil rebels, where voting in the first elections in a decade began on Aug. 8.
Meanwhile, Samir Mehta also told Bloomberg in the same interview that “If the political process of integrating the minority Tamils is handled well, the economy could grow at above 10 percent per annum for the next decade.”
