The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) recently rang the Opening Bell to commence trading at the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) to mark the organisation’s centenary year.

Headquartered in the UK, CILT is the premier chartered professional body for professionals engaged in supply chain, logistics and transport, and is represented in 35 countries with over 35,000 members. The Bell Ringing event was hosted for CILT Sri Lanka, and was part of a series of initiatives conducted around the globe in celebration of this milestone.

Chairperson Gayani de Alwis, Secretary Chaminda Perera, Vice Chairman Gihan Jayasinghe, Immediate past Chairman Capt. Lasitha Cumarathunga, past Chairmen Mr. Saliya Senanayake and Niral Kadawathaarachchi represented CILT at the event. The CSE was represented by Director Prof. Jeeva Niriella, CEO Rajeeva Bandaranaike and the senior management of the Exchange.

CSE CEO Rajeeva Bandaranaike congratulated CILT for completing 100 successful years. He commended the leadership of the institution and all who have contributed towards its growth.

He also noted the importance of strengthening the relationship between the two organisations through synergistic and strategic alliances which will be mutually beneficial given the important role played by CSE and CILT in the economy.

Chairperson of CILT Sri Lanka Gayani De Alwis said the institute was honoured to celebrate the centenary year of CILT in Sri Lanka with a Bell Ringing ceremony at the Colombo Stock Exchange.

The institute is committed to support human capital development in the industry through internationally accredited educational programs and continuing professional development programs to ensure quality of logistics related education in the country.
