The CNCI “Achievers of Industrial Excellence” Award is held on an annual basis to recognise businesses that have excelled in manufacturing or service and promoted local industrial growth. It is organised by the Ceylon National Chamber of Industries, the Country’s premier industrial chamber, who seek to provide support services and a conducive environment to Sri Lanka’s industries to achieve excellence by interacting with the Government and related organisations; in order to enhance the economic prosperity of Sri Lanka.

A key vision of the CNCI remains to contribute towards the stimulation of local business.

The success of their activities with total commitment to national development will contribute much to the social and economic development of our country.”
