By Hiran H.Senewiratne

Sri Lanka is one of the countries in the Asian region that has endless potential to do business. Therefore, it is a very good place to invest in and I hope to invest in multiple projects in the future in the country, Founder Chairman, Nippon Donation Foundation Yuma Muranushi said.

“It is imperative that we do as much as we can to assist this island nation and its people in their recovery from the challenges brought about by the current economic situation, Muranushi said at a function held at the Shangri La Hotel on Thursday where he handed over a donation of dry item packs to Sri Lanka’s cricketing personality Roshan Mahanama to be distributed among needy persons in the country through his charitable organization.

‘I have taken the initiative to promote Japanese investments in the country in the future and some Japanese still think that the war between the government of Sri Lanka and LTTE is still on here, which is considered to be one of the peaceful countries in the region despite the current financial crisis, Muranushi said.

MuranushI added: ‘I had previously donated Rs 10 million worth of medicine to the National Hospital and am hoping to donate some more in the future because Sri Lankans are now going through major hardships due to the ongoing economic crisis.

‘The Nippon Donation Foundation has been active over the past 30 years around the world and continues its efforts to uplift sectors in developing nations, such as, health, education and entrepreneurship.’

National Director, Nippon Donation Foundation, Dr Ruwan Perera said that he is personally working towards attracting Japanese investors into the country. ‘I am especially working on obtaining scholarships for Sri Lankan students and undergraduates, Perera added.

Perera is currently the chairman of a conglomerate in Sri Lanka holding over US $ 100 million worth of interest in the country. “My latest investment was US $ 25 million to build the first airport transit in Sri Lanka, he explained.
