Although Sri Lanka is renowned the world over as an island blessed with precious gems, there is no international hub for gems for the island to market on the global stage. With t he aim of rectifying this shortcoming, the Urban Development Authority has envisioned a plan to commence a mega integrated development project that will create the International Gem City in the city of Ratnapura within the next five years.
