Microsoft to power virtual investment forum

5 June, 2021

Microsoft will be the official technology partner for the upcoming Sri Lanka Investment Forum 2021 and Microsoft Teams will become the platform of choice to host the country’s first-ever virtual investor forum. 

The first-of-its-kind virtual investment forum will be powered by Microsoft Teams and led by the Board of Investment of Sri Lanka (BOI), Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE), and the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC). Microsoft will be extending its technology expertise by conducting exhibitor training sessions, setting-up and managing the Microsoft Teams live events from June 7-9.“We are happy to partner with BOI, CSE, and CCC in facilitating this unique virtual investment forum on Microsoft Teams,” said Country Manager, Microsoft Sri Lanka and the Maldives, Hasitha Abeywardena.

“Foreign domestic investments are at the heart of economic growth and can help Sri Lanka graduate to the upper-middle income country status as per the World Bank and such initiatives by key institutes of the Country are welcomed.

It is an honour to have this investment forum be hosted on Microsoft Teams. We will continue to invest in our greatest assets — our people and technology — so that people and organisations in every industry stay agile and resilient in this new era,” he said.

According to a joint statement from BOI, CSE, and CCC: the event is expected to attract investment interest from around the world, including high-net-worth individuals and institutional investors.

The event will discuss the macroeconomic landscape in Sri Lanka and will highlight all major projects and ventures open for direct investment while also featuring the investment case for CSE-listed companies.
