Finance Minister and Central Bank Governor set to speak at first session of summit

President Maithripala Sirisena will inaugurate the Sri Lanka Economic Summit 2016 as the Chief Guest and is set to address the audience, thus setting the tone for a vital two-day summit which will discuss the country’s economy in length and depth.

Soon after the inauguration, Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake and Central Bank Governor Dr. Indrajit Coomaraswamy will deliver the keynote speeches at session 1 of the event, which will discuss ‘Accelerating Growth, Pushing for Performance’.

The duo’s speeches will be followed by a panel discussion with the participation of another three eminent resource persons – Pemandu Malaysia CEO Dato Sri Idris Jala, former Central Bank Deputy Governor W.A. Wijewardena and IPS Chairman Professor Razeen Sally.


Ceylon Chamber of Commerce Chairperson Samantha Ranatunga will deliver the welcome address of the event, while former Chairperson Suresh Shah will moderate the panel discussion of the first session. The summit will take place on 2 and 3 August at the Cinnamon Grand Hotel, Colombo.

The annual event, which attracted 450 top executives as participants during last year, falls in line with some of the Chamber’s key principles, such as creating a market oriented and a private sector led economy, an economy based on competitiveness, driven by exports, attracting quality FDIs and making Sri Lanka a preferred investment destination.

To reserve a seat for this important and highly productive event, please call 0115588852 or email events@chamber.lk.
