      Sri Lanka has a Human Development Index of 0.659 and ranks 91 on the world’s list of countries. The country’s hdi has been steadily improving in the last 10 years.

      Traditional crafts are not produced as much as in the past. Economic growth and the competition with developed countries has resulted in westernisation and a weakening of cultural identity. The thriving tourist industry is having some impact on maintaining traditional handicraft production. Artisans have a history of using locally available raw materials such as wood, reed, bamboo, coconut fibre, brass, and handloomed fabric for production of handicrafts. Sri Lankan artisans are renowned for their carving, batiks, lace and pottery.
