After years of civil war, Sri Lanka’s economy was struggling. The Facilitating Economic Growth Program (2009-2014) launched very soon after the war to revitalize Sri Lanka’s post-conflict economy through rapid, targeted technical assistance to businesses, industries, and business-related government agencies. IESC fielded a mix of consultants and volunteer experts on short-term assignments to the country. The program was funded by USAID through the Volunteers for Economic Growth Alliance (VEGA).
At IESC, we strive to leave behind stronger institutions and more skilled and knowledgeable people. Learn more about the Sri Lanka Program - check out our videos.
