The Sri Lankan economy relies on textiles, tea and tourism, along with remittances from those who leave to work abroad.

The civil war ended in 2009 but left vast swathes of displaced people, along with damaged infrastructure and a struggling economy.

There is freedom of religion in the nation, although extreme Buddhist groups often perceive Christianity as a threat, leading to occasional violence and a strong anti-conversion stance.

The growth of the church in Sri Lanka has been strong, and many natives have led the way.
