The National Human Resources Development Council of Sri Lanka (NHRDC) together with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CASL), Daily Financial Times and the International Chamber of Commerce Sri Lanka (ICC) have organised a discussion forum to facilitate the preparation of the annual budget 2019/20 for human capital development.

This forum will seek insights on how the scarce funding resources should be distributed in the key areas of human capital development. This forum constitutes an assembly of experts from within Sri Lanka and outside who will deliberate on the pros and cons of what and where these funding should be spent. While there are many targeted areas of learning, there is also a distribution of areas differentiated by the learning age of the population and the purpose of learning. The session will be held on 24 July from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka, Malalasekara Mawatha, Colombo 07. State Minister of Finance Eran Wickramaratne and Australia’s High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Bryce Hutchesson will participate and speak at the event. A presentation on proposed Budget Proposals covering the education and TVET sector by Dr. Chandra Embuldeniya, Council Member, NHRDC and Founder, Vice Chancellor Uva Wellassa University will be the highlight of the event.

NHRDC Chairman Dinesh Weerakkody will moderate a session to discuss the Human Capital Development proposals. The panel will include CMA Chairman Prof. Lakshman R. Watawala, former VC and Council Member NHRD Dr. Chandra Embuldeniya, World Bank Lead Economist Dr. Harsha Athurupana, DIMO Chairman Ranjith Pandithage, and EFC Director General Kanishka Weerasinghe.
