Sri Lanka

In October 2012, the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka joined the SUN Movement with a letter of commitment from HE Lalith Weeratunga, Secretary to the President. By 2015, multiple ministries were involved with the multistakeholder platform for nutrition, including the Ministry of Trade and Industry, however, the private sector had not yet mobilised. The SUN Business Network in Sri Lanka launched in March 2019, with the support of the World Food Programme and solid ambitions for the coming year.
