Sri Lanka News

Latest news on Sri Lanka, an island nation in the Indian Ocean, located off the southeastern coast of India, which is currently undergoing an economic crisis. The country is home to over 20 million people, making it the 64th most populous country in the world. The official languages of Sri Lanka are Sinhala and Tamil, with English also being widely spoken. The capital city of Sri Lanka is Colombo, and the country's currency is the Sri Lankan rupee.

Sri Lanka has a long history, dating back to over 2,000 years ago. The island was ruled by a number of different kingdoms and empires over the centuries, including the Portuguese, Dutch, and British. Sri Lanka gained independence from Britain in 1948, and has since been a republic. The economy of Sri Lanka is based largely on agriculture, with rice, tea, and coconuts being the main crops. Tourism is also an important industry, with the country's beaches and historical sites attracting visitors from all over the world.
