He added that the current policy of the Government is to attract High Tech companies with a view of creating a diversified Sri Lankan export base.

The visit of KUK Electronics AG is a direct result of the visit by the BOI Reinvestment Team comprising of Duminda Ariyasinghe, Director General of the BOI and Mahinda Ramanayake - Executive Director (Investor Services) to Switzerland in September last year. This visit was in fact organized by another Swiss company, already established in Sri Lanka, Contrinex Ceylon (Pvt) Ltd and which also targeted similar Swiss export manufacturers with an interest in setting up manufacturing plants in Sri Lanka.
