Sri Jayawardenepura, administrative capital, Suez Canal, urban communities, foreign trade

Only 24 percent of Sri Lanka’s population lives in urban communities. Colombo is the largest city. Most of the foreign trade of the island is routed through its commercial capital Colombo, and the city has been an important fueling station for ships that pass through the Suez Canal. Other important urban areas are the rapidly expanding suburb of Colombo, Dehiwala-Mount Lavinia; the seaport of Jaffna; Sri Jayawardenepura, the administrative capital; the ancient capital city of Kandy; and the tea-producing community of Galle.
