Sri Lanka registers best air quality in South Asia.

Sri Lanka is excluded from this list. Experts attribute Sri Lanka’s low air pollution to the stringent vehicle emission testing program the island nation initiated in 2008 resulting in a higher quality of air compared to its neighbours.

Swedish business magazines writes about Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka on the right track. Swedish Dagens Industri recently published an travel article about Sri Lanka but also had a short interview with our member Christina Riddebäck.

"We meet in Colombo, the country's largest city that can be perceived as messy and rather difficult for a first-time visitor. There is no clear city center, traffic is heated and the streets go hither and thither without any seemingly logical system. But Christina Riddebäck has made the city her.
