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.
