Since its establishment in 1966, the organisation has had many distinguished industry personalities leading the apex organisation. A large gathering of industry persons will be participating at the post business session where Dr. Jayasundera will be delivering the keynote speech whilst Omar will make a presentation on the technology advancement and the export sector.
