DPR Global Business Networks Ltd. joined with Digital Media Solutions (Australia) that owns the ‘O2O Events Portal’ to host a webinar recently.

The webinar was organised in order to create a platform where Sri Lankan exporters will be able to meet with international buyers online. The event was also held to update buyers and sellers on the proposed virtual exhibition ‘Ayubowan! Made in Sri Lanka to Global’ scheduled to be held from 19 to 21 February. 

“With the new normalcy that everybody around the world is getting used to particularly when it is relatively impossible to visit any country at this point in time, the need of a virtual platform to create this connection is of paramount importance. It’s to meet this objective that ‘Ayubowan! Made in Sri Lanka to Global’ is organised,” an official from the organisers said.

The keynote address on the topic of ‘Challenges of Sri Lankan Exports in the Global Market’ was delivered by National Chamber of Exporters immediate past president Ramal Jasinghe.
