Anushka Wijesinha, who is the Chief Economist of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, will make a presentation on the Chamber’s outlook for the year and chair the panel discussion.
Under the title of ‘Triumph Through Turbulence in 2017’, the expert group will discuss the outlook for growth, trade, and investment in 2017, key macroeconomic variables, and the global economic shifts that would impact Sri Lanka.
Dr. Harinda Vidanage, the Director of the Bandaranaike Centre for International Studies and Visiting Professor of St. Lawrence University, New York, will speak in a special segment on the ‘The implications of new US President Trump on global affairs’.

The event will provide the participants an enhanced understanding of the current economic and political trends and turbulence and how to successfully navigate the year ahead.
