Citizens Development Business Finance PLC (CDB), a leading licensed finance company, will power the 36th National Conference of Chartered Accountants with a gold sponsorship.
Organised by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka), the conference, which will revolve around the theme ‘Catalyst 2015: Collaborate to Compete’, will be held from the 4 to 6 November and will bring together chartered accountants including influential business leaders who steer businesses both locally and globally.
Elaborating on the partnership, CDB Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer Mahesh Nanayakkara said, “CDB has been founded on the strong fundamentals of financial empowerment and social inclusivity both of which are espoused by CA Sri Lanka. This year’s conference theme for example, ‘Collaborate to Compete’ is extremely pragmatic and a tenet that resonates well at CDB given the evolutionary dynamics the world is in and the need for us to be prepared for these fast changing transformations to remain on top. We are indeed honoured to be partnering with CA Sri Lanka once more at its flagship National Conference.”
CA Sri Lanka President Arjuna Herath welcoming CDB onboard once again emphasised that CDB’s continuing support was a clear indication of the confidence reposed in the Institute activities. He added, “As the national body of accountants in the country, we take it upon our responsibility to provide leadership and insight to the accounting and finance profession in the country, and the national conference is the perfect platform to communicate the need for progression and also spell the need to change from traditional ideologies when and where required.”
