Analysis

Sri Lanka is a minor power in Asia.

The country’s overall score declined by 0.3 points compared to 2019. The country is one of eighteen in the region to trend downward in its overall score in 2020, largely due to the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Sri Lanka performs best in the diplomatic influence measure, where it places 17th. Its lowest ranking is in the defence networks measure, coming in at 22nd place.

In 2020, Sri Lanka saw its greatest improvement in defence networks, where it moved up three places. However, it has slipped by two places in the resilience measure relative to 2019.

Sri Lanka exerts less influence in the region than expected given its available resources, as indicated by the country’s negative power gap score. While Sri Lanka is a net underachiever in Asia, its negative power gap improved in 2020.
