The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce will organise a seminar under the theme of ‘Brexit and its Implications to Sri Lanka’ on 24 May at the Chamber auditorium at 9 a.m.

It serves as an important opportunity to understand both the outlook for the economy and key sectors in 2019.

The United Kingdom’s decision to exit the European Union and the subsequent developments since then has resulted in uncertainty for global trade and financial markets. Brexit remains a major concern for the country given it is Sri Lanka’s second largest export destination with an export value of over $ 1 billion. 

Dr. Ganesh Wignaraja (Executive Director of Lakshman Kadirgamar Institute), Utsav Kumar (Senior Country Economist, Asian Development Bank) and Jayani Ratnayake (Economist, The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce) will be the key presenters. Thereafter Nimal Karunathilake (Acting Addl. Director General of Commerce), Felix Fernando (Immediate Past Chairman of Sri Lanka Apparel Exporters Association/Group Director, Omega Line Ltd.) and Utsav Kumar will take part in a panel discussion moderated by Shiran Fernando (Chief Economist, The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce).

For registration contact 11 55 888 82 or email events@chamber.lk/nazila@chamber.lk.
