The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has recognised People’s Bank by awarding it the ‘Most Responsive Bank against Covid-19’ at the  ADB Trade and Supply Finance Program Awards 2021 (TSCFP Awards 2021).  

People’s Bank Chairman Sujeewa Rajapakse said, “This achievement is another testament to People’s Bank’s unwavering commitment to look beyond mere profit motives and assist the country whenever called to do so. It gives us a great sense of fulfillment to see that our efforts have brought about the desired results in terms of curbing the pandemic situation and bringing back the country to normalcy.”

People’s Bank CEO and GM, Ranjith Kodituwakku said, “We are cognisant of the national role a bank of our stature has to play when the country is facing a critical situation. This is why our entire team worked tirelessly and relentlessly to offer all banking services uninterrupted despite unprecedented challenges we were facing. It is indeed an encouragement to see that the efforts of our team have not gone unnoticed.”

The award was received following a rigorous independent evaluation which takes into account multiple factors such as the positive impact the particular transaction had on the country, how it enabled the client to improve their business and the manner in which TSCFP contributed to the success of the transaction.
