Why Apple does not open its official showroom in Sri Lanka?
As common business strategy, the brand goes where there is huge reputation and nature of business such as importance of business hub and quantity of users. Places like Dubai and Singapore have business hub nature since huge number of people around the world visits those cities every day. Therefore, quantity of users automatically increases. Sri Lanka does not have such status since it is a developing country.
