Abstract
After a tsunami in 2004, the Sri Lankan Ministry of Science and Technology sought ways to accelerate their economic development through their burgeoning high tech industries. This paper serves as a recommendation to the Ministry to encourage Sri Lankan scientists working and studying abroad to return to the country to aid in rebuilding efforts. It accounts for the factors that lead many Sri Lankan nationals to move abroad, and provides recommendations to entice their return.
