Sri Lanka’s premier telecom service provider, Dialog Axiata Plc, is the Principal Sponsor of the EDEX Expo Job Fair 2017. 

Organised by the Royal College Union, EDEX Expo is Sri Lanka’s largest higher education and careers fair and will take place at the BMICH from 20-22 January.

Dialog, a subsidiary of Axiata Group Berhad, operates Sri Lanka’s largest and fastest-growing mobile telecommunications network with over 11 million customers. The company’s association with Edex Expo now spans four years and serves as an extension of its vision to connect Sri Lankan youth to development opportunities on the local and global stage. Parallel to its vision to deliver ‘The Future. Today’ to all Sri Lankans, Dialog has contributed immensely to the country’s education sector via the Nenasa satellite-based distance education network, the Dialog Merit Scholarships Programme and mobile-based learning apps such as guru.lk to boost learning and development island-wide.

“Dialog’s association with the Edex Expo is multifaceted. It allows youth to explore new avenues for learning and career development, plus, the role of ICTs to help them achieve their dreams. On the other hand, this serves as an ideal platform for Dialog and other exhibitors alike to draw on the vast talent that has over the years made Edex Expo a foundation for their future,” said Dialog Axiata Plc Group Chief Corporate Officer Shayam Majeed.

EDEX Chairman Mahinda Galagedera, said: “We are extremely happy that Dialog Axiata, a brand that enjoys a close rapport with the youth of Sri Lanka, is sponsoring the EDEX Job Fair 2017. We are confident that the youth will find Dialog’s offering and those of other exhibitors on par with their expectations and EDEX will continue to be a catalyst in creating and empowering career opportunities.”
