Agri exports: What's holding Sri Lanka back The effects of domestic NTBs on agricultural export growth
17th January 2017

A study by Verité Research (VR) together with the Lanka Fruit and Vegetables Producers, Processors and Exporters Association (LFVPPEA) found that domestic barriers faced by Sri Lankan exporters at the border of their own country to be a significant problem. These barriers exist especially for agricultural exports, which can enrich the rural and farm economy. Agricultural exports, especially perishables, suffer the greatest difficulty within the country, not outside.

The study identifies three types of domestic barriers that the export sector face when dealing with border agencies in Sri Lanka;

  • Regulatory barriers

  • Administrative barriers

  • Information barriers
