Ceylon Chamber’s Economic Summit in September

‘Sri Lanka Economic Summit 2018’, organised by the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, will be held from September 12-14 at Cinnamon Grand Colombo. The theme for this year’s summit is ‘On the Fast Track to a Turnaround’.

Sri Lanka’s economy is again at a crucial juncture in need of a swift and well strategised turnaround to bring about economic stability and development. This is in the backdrop of weak local economic growth, rising global commodity prices and uncertainty in global trade.

The summit will be a wholesome opportunity to learn about government plans to develop the Sri Lankan economy (as well as the progress in implementation of plans), to improve business through knowledge enhancement pertaining to relevant sectors, to identify potential sectors and projects for investment in Sri Lanka, to clarify concerns with key government officials/industry leaders, and also to meet and network.

Last year’s Economic Summit saw the participation of many Chairpersons, CEOs, Directors, Senior Managers, foreign investors, senior government officials, and academics.

Over 40 resource persons, comprising high profile cabinet ministers, policy makers, business leaders and academics shared insights and made recommendations on how Sri Lanka can transform its economy to realise its potential.

The outcomes of the discussions at last year’s summit have led to policy strategies such as the innovation and entrepreneurship strategy and digital economy strategy.

At this year’s summit, the emphasis will be on shaping a turnaround for the Sri Lankan economy whilst delving deep into areas such as trade, investment and services that will help drive this.
