By Karunyan Arulanantham (Tamil American Peace Initiative), Huffington Post, 19 August 2011 - If American businesses want to invest in Sri Lanka, they must craft equitable investment strategies that fully support policies of non-discrimination and investment in war-devastated regions. If the government of Sri Lanka is not willing to cooperate in these and other efforts for accountability and reconciliation, then American businesses should take their investments elsewhere. Many of the conditions that led to the brutal, decades-long civil war in Sri Lanka have yet to be resolved. Shareholders and consumers must not become unwitting accomplices to the on-going oppression and discrimination by pumping investment dollars into the island without understanding the policies they are funding.
