  • Daily FT-Colombo University MBA Alumni Association event to bring together over 20 young and future business leaders for brainstorming on upcoming 2018 Budget with Mangala and Eran 

Standard Chartered Bank has come forward as the Strategic Partner for the seventh consecutive one-of-a-kind pre-Budget brainstorming session between the Finance Ministry and the private sector championed by the Daily FT and the University of Colombo MBA Alumni Association. 

The by-invitation-only event scheduled for tomorrow in Colombo will bring together over 20 young and future business leaders for a frank discussion with Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera and State Minister of Finance Eran Wickramaratne. 

Akin to an elevator pitch, each of the young business leaders will be given a three-minute opportunity to list their key expectations from the 2018 Budget which the Finance Minister will present in Parliament on 9 November. 

Given its continued commitment to private sector-led socioeconomic growth for the past several years, Standard Chartered Bank has been an integral part of this unique initiative.
