The 21st Presidential Export Awards (PEA) ceremony organised by the Sri Lanka Export Development Board (EDB) will be held on Thursday, 14 September at 10.00 a.m. at the BMICH. 

President Maithripala Sirisena will be Chief Guest at the event. 

Initiated by the EDB in 1981, the PEA is the most prestigious award for exports in Sri Lanka and is presented to exporters who have made a significant contribution to Sri Lanka’s exports.

This year’s ceremony will recognise and salute the exporters for their excellence in 2016 and the awards symbolise the national recognition of the exporters, particularly with non-traditional products and services.

The PEA 2016 is organised by the EDB under the leadership of Chairperson and Chief Executive Indira Malwatte and the guidance of Minister of Development Strategies and International Trade Malik Samarawickrama and State Minister of International Trade Sujeewa Senasinghe.

The award selections were made by an eminent panel headed by a retired judge of the Supreme Court. In total, 60 awards will be presented during the ceremony - eleven special overall awards, 15 for the highest foreign exchange earners and 34 sectoral awards for best value-added exporters.
