The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce has released a new and updated Directory of Members.

The directory is a comprehensive guide consisting of the contact details and business activities of 630 member companies of the Ceylon Chamber. These are further categorised as exporters, importers, manufacturers, service providers, agent’s representatives, traders, suppliers and wholesalers and joint venture interests of member companies for easy reference.

It also comprises useful contacts such as Sri Lanka diplomatic missions overseas, diplomatic missions in Sri Lanka, banks, hotels, government institutions and international agencies. Arrangements have already been made to circulate copies of the directory to 128 overseas trade promotion organisations with which the Ceylon Chamber has established partnerships through the signing of Memoranda of Understanding. 

Established on 25 March 1839, the Ceylon Chamber commenced with 26 members, when the country’s population numbered 1.4 million. Today, with the population surpassing the 21 million mark, the chamber’s membership has grown to 630, with an outreach of over 8,500 institutions, through various affiliated regional chambers of commerce, trade associations and business councils. Twenty-nine of the current members have maintained their membership for more than 100 years. 

The Ceylon Chamber also has the unique feature of a confederation of chambers of commerce and industry, trade associations, regional chambers, employer organisations and bilateral business councils in Sri Lanka.
