The Board of Investment (BOI) of Sri Lanka has signed a supplementary agreement with J and D Venture (Pvt) Limited to manufacture garment accessories such as stickers and body cards for export at their existing plant which is located in Katuwawala, Boralesgamuwa. Further, the agreement will also allow production of packaging items for export.

The agreement was signed on behalf of the BOI by Mangala Yapa, chairman of the board and on behalf of company by Seong Eun Lee and Seok Ok Jang, directors.

Lee and Jang invested in Sri Lanka as BOI projects, Da-Sung Industrial (Pvt) Limited and Jin-Sung Industrial (Pvt) Limited in 1993. They were pioneers of manufacturing woven labels in Sri Lanka. As operations started to grow, they invested in several other BOI projects manufacturing hand-tags, screen printing and embroidery garments.

“Having been born in South Korea, our countries have gone through similar modern histories, especially the fact that both have had to recover from an economically debilitating civil war. South Korea like Sri Lanka moved to propagate the manufacturing sector as a means to pull themselves out from hard times and become more economically self-sufficient. Even today, manufacturing alone accounts for about 40 per cent of South Korea's GDP and is extremely important for nations that are looking to develop their respective economies. I strongly hope to support the process of strengthening Sri Lanka's manufacturing sector by implementing some of the economic strategies that were used in South Korea and help Sri Lanka's wider economic ecosystem in the process," said Lee.
