Secretary to the Treasury and the Ministry of Finance and Planning Dr. P.B. Jayasundera will deliver the 19th Annual Tax Oration of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka), which will be held on 11 September at the CA Sri Lanka Auditorium. Dr. Jayasundera will speak on ‘New Dimensions of Sri Lanka’s Public Financial Management and Taxation in the context of Emerging Global Environment’. The Annual Tax Oration is a much awaited event in the institute’s calendar and attracts a large number of professionals, including high-level tax officials from the public sector, and members of CA Sri Lanka. Over the years, the Annual Tax Oration organised by the Faculty of Taxation has seen orations from high profile speakers in the likes of Ministers Prof. G.L. Peiris, Dr. Sarath Amunugama and Chief Justice Mohan Peiris. Last year’s oration was delivered by Ajith Nivard Cabraal, Governor of the Central Bank. The Medallion to the orator of this event as in all preceding events comes from Esmond Satarasinghe, a founding member of CA Sri Lanka. CA Sri Lanka established its Faculty of Taxation in 1995 with the objective of assisting members to further knowledge and practice in taxation. The Faculty organises various events hosted by eminent professionals to share knowledge on subjects related to taxation and the Annual Tax Oration is one of the faculty’s key events.
