The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) Sri Lanka welcomes the appointment of one of its illustrious Fellows, Dr. Parakrama Dissanayake, as the Chairman of the Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA).

Dr. Dissanayake has been associated with CILT for over three decades and was the Chairman of the Sri Lankan branch from 1998 to 2000, one of his many accolades in the shipping and logistics sector.

The Institute is encouraged by his sentiments that Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe has “a tremendous vision for the maritime sector of Sri Lanka; to bring back the old glory to the port sector.” The country undoubtedly needs well-trained and qualified professionals to achieve this vision and CILT has been in the forefront of delivering this.

CILT Sri Lanka extends its heartiest congratulations to Dr. Dissanayake and is confident that he will provide the leadership to make Sri Lanka the logistic hub of the region, a media release from the Institute said.
