As the official banking partner for the Fairway Galle Literary Festival scheduled from 24 to 28 January 2018, DFCC Bank’s customers can look forward to enjoying a range of literary related events at the festival. Apart from the exclusive customer events, the bank will also operate a mini branch to facilitate transactions, and foreign currency encashment in order to extend convenience to the festival attendees. An ATM at the festival location will be made available as a result of the bank’s partnership with the event in the capacity of the ‘Official Banking Partner’. 

In order to engage with customers, DFCC has organised activities in the vicinity in the form of ‘Spin the wheel and win gifts’. The bank has also created a ‘Vardhana Junior Play Area’ with fun and recreational activities for kids who attend this festival.

Commenting on this partnership, DFCC Bank CEO Lakshman Silva said: “We are pleased to step forward as the ‘Official Banking Partner’ at the Fairway Galle Literary Festival, which is a reputed global literary event. DFCC Bank has strengthened their presence in the south in recent years and look forward to further serving our customers in the Southern Province. The partnership with the literary festival is part of the bank’s long-term commitment to supporting events that uplift the arts and literature in Sri Lanka whilst raising the profile of the island as a creative hub in the international arena.”
