Following the success of ‘Fireside chat 2018 with Six Bold and Daring Sri Lankan Entrepreneurs’, ICC Sri Lanka and CIMA Sri Lanka will come together again to jointly host ‘Fireside Chat 2019: Featuring leading foreign envoys in Sri Lanka’. The theme of the event is ‘An International Perspective on Sri Lanka’s future’.
This year’s Fireside Chat on 19 March at the Hilton, Colombo will feature leading foreign envoys in Sri Lanka. The event will feature nine foreign ambassadors, from the UK, China, EU, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Indonesia, Netherlands, Canada and Switzerland. The envoys will provide an international perspective on Sri Lanka’s future and will be moderated by ICC Sri Lanka Chairman Dinesh Weerakkody and Daily FT Editor Nisthar Cassim.
The highlight of the event will be the closing session with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, who will discuss some of the key challenges facing Sri Lanka and the way forward. Dhammika Perera, a prominent entrepreneur and investor in Sri Lanka will join the closing session at the upcoming Fireside Chat 2019 to be held for the second consecutive year. Perera will thereafter join the PM for a joint session to discuss challenges and opportunities in the business sector in country.
