Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe will deliver the keynote address at the final session of the Sri Lanka Economic Summit (SLES) 2018, organised by Sri Lanka’s apex business chamber, the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC). 

The event will be held spanning over the course of two days on 13 and 14 September, at the Cinnamon Grand Colombo.

Fifty top expert speakers and panellists are lined up to speak at SLES 2018, forming a high standard intellectual debate on issues that relate to State and private sector efforts of driving an economic turnaround. 

During the closing session, the Prime Minister will speak on how the Government plans to take forward the findings that emerge from the six sessions prior to the closing. This will then be followed by a high profile panel discussion with CCC Vice Chairman Dr. Hans Wijesuriya, CCC Deputy Vice Chairman Vish Govindasamy, Standard Chartered Bank Sri Lanka CEO Jim McCabe and CCC Chairman Rajendra Theagarajah as moderator of this final panel discussion. 

With Sri Lanka’s economy at a crucial juncture in need of a swift and well-strategised turnaround, SLES 2018 will delve deep into areas such as trade, investment and services, along with necessary reforms that will help meet emerging challenges. 

This is the 18th consecutive year that the summit is being organised by the CCC, making this a premier forum for economic discussion and one that is not to be missed. 

A limited number of seats are remaining and those interested in attending should not delay to contact the event hotlines 0770228833, 0770228855 or 0770228877 or email satheesha@chamber.lk, nazila@chamber.lk or events@chamber.lk.
