U.S. supports Sri Lanka's vision to become a regional hub for logistics and commerce

United States Department of Defense (DoD) says it supports Sri Lanka's vision to become a regional hub for logistics and commerce. The Department Of Defense outlining its strategy to ensure the peace and security in the dynamic and rapidly growing Indo-Pacific region notes its strategy to broaden its partnership with Sri Lanka. According to the recent Indo-Pacific Strategy Report: Preparedness, Partnerships, and Promoting a Networked Region, since 2015, the DoD has strengthened its relationship with Sri Lanka and increased military engagements significantly, particularly with the Sri Lankan Navy.  DoD highlights that while the Indian Ocean Region is at the nexus of global trade and commerce, with nearly half of the world's 90,000 commercial vessels and two thirds of global oil trade traveling through its sea lanes, and offers unprecedented opportunity, the region is also confronting a myriad of security challenges, including terrorism, transnational crime, trafficking-in-persons, and illicit drugs.
