An eminent panel of local and foreign speakers are billed to speak at the technical sessions of the Sri Lanka Ceramics and Glass Symposium on 6 March, while the inauguration ceremony on 5 March will be graced by President of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka Maithripala Sirisena and the keynote address will be delivered by MAS Holdings Chairman Deshamanya Mahesh Amalean. The theme of the symposium is ‘Sustainability through Value Migration’.  

The technical sessions will be under four themes: 

nBeing Globally Competent

nHR – Maintaining a Competitive Advantage

nProcess Improvement


The technical sessions, although primarily focused on developing strategies and introducing new management techniques to personnel in the Ceramic and Glass sector, will be equally useful to managerial level personnel in any industry. 

The Ceramic and Glass Symposium is held once in every two years and this is the seventh Symposium since the formation of the Sri Lanka Ceramics and Glass Council. There will be 17 speakers including technical presentations by foreign suppliers and two case studies of successful value migration. 

More than 150 local and foreign participants drawn from manufacturing organisations, suppliers as well as Universities, R&D institutes and Government policy makers are expected to attend.
