BOI is supposed to be one stop shop for investors .People pay money to get registered as a BOI company and keep paying annual fee for it’s upkeep .BOI is also top-heavy agency occupying prime location in the World Trade Centre.

.During JR ‘s time when it was started it was doing a yeoman service to the country by promoting investments and then facilitating speedy approvals .During R Premadasa’s time all Garment Factories were built under BOI flag and investment was booming.

Can anyone identify a single Industry started during the last few years? Highly paid officers globetrotting ,spending public  money holding road shows ,do not contribute to the development .

As suggested ,BOI should be fully shutdown and form an agency under the President and call it the  Investment Support Agency . so that HE the President can personally monitor investments like R Premadasa
