Nations Trust Bank was the principal sponsor of the 26th Annual NCE Exporters Awards at the Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo recently. It was organised by the National Chamber of Exporters.

Senior Executive Vice President SME Banking, Bandara Jayatilake said, “Throughout human history, the importance of international trade has only grown. For Sri Lanka, it is a major contributor to the economy with demand for locally produced goods and services consistently growing. In this backdrop, Nations Trust Bank is redefining convenience and works hard to provide a comprehensive range of solutions to facilitate international trade transactions for exporters as well as importers.

“By hosting the NCE Annual Exporters Awards, the NCE provides a platform for exporters to present their products to the market and also to be recognised for excellence in their fields. Therefore, Nations Trust Bank, as a bank that supports our exporters, is proud to be associated with these associations in such a meaningful way,” he said.

The Bank’s services include advice for letters of credit, confirmation of letters of credit, reimbursement undertaking, establishment of reimbursement authorities, payments against reimbursement claims, pre shipment facilities such as packing credit loans and post shipment facilities such as export bill negotiation and export bill discounting. The National Chamber of Exporters (NCE) was established in 1986 to provide a forum for small and large exporters to cooperate and voice their concerns.

The Chamber later became a member of the Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Sri Lanka (FCCISL) and has since expanded its portfolio of activities to further support and assist its members.

Nations Trust Bank PLC is among the top 30 business establishments in Sri Lanka as ranked by Business Today Magazine, providing a host of financial products and services to a wide range of customers. Nations Trust is also the bank behind Sri Lanka’s first fully digital bank, FriMi.
