“Chartered Accountants must explore opportunities”

18 October, 2020

Chartered Accountants and other professionals must look for new opportunities despite the gloomy situation created by the global pandemic, President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka) Manil Jayesinghe told the media at the launch of CA Sri Lanka’s 41st national conference which be held at the BMICH from December 2-4. The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Abnormal’.

The conference will take on a hybrid format with a combination of traditional physical sessions and virtual sessions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Director of Selyn Handlooms, Selyna Peiris will be the keynote speaker. He said that the road to recovery at a global and local level is likely to be long and arduous.

But he was confident that Sri Lanka with the help of its dynamic business and professional community will overcome the challenge as in the past.

“Chartered Accountants must get over the crisis. We as the national body, have already addressed difficulties faced by our members,” he said.

Every year the National Conference attracts over 2,000 people. However, the organisers are confident of attracting a larger number of delegates this year, including their counterparts from the South Asian region, due to the hybrid format the conference will take on.
