Lanka IOC PLC has come onboard once again to power CA Sri Lanka’s 36th National Conference of Chartered Accountants with a Gold sponsorship. The conference will revolve around the theme ‘Catalyst 2015: Collaborate to Compete’.
Shyam Bohra, Managing Director of Lanka IOC, said that his company was privileged to be collaborating with CA Sri Lanka in its endeavour to deliberate on the theme ‘Collaborate to Compete’ and to explore a new business paradigm.
“We admire and appreciate CA Sri Lanka for picking such a thought provoking theme which has greater relevance in current business, social and political spectrum than ever before,” he said.
Bohra said when the world major economies are facing recessionary conditions including unexpected shocks like heightened geopolitical conflicts in various parts of the world, it is also opening up a plethora of opportunities for countries like Sri Lanka where business confidence is at an all-time high as per the latest survey.
“Now, it is up to us to widen our geographical reach by joining hands together in a more integrated and coordinated way within and beyond the organizational boundaries for sharing knowledge, technology, risk and good practices to improve the quality, efficiency and productivity on sustainable basis. We at Lanka IOC, have always collaborated with Sri Lanka in its journey towards success, and as we progress into the years ahead, our story will continue to be intertwined with that of this great nation and its potential for excellence,” he added.
Welcoming Lanka IOC, CA Sri Lanka President Arjuna Herath said that it was a pleasure to have a company in the stature of Lanka IOC to support the 36th National Conference for a second consecutive year.
“We are looking forward to yet another inspiring and thought provoking conference this year from 4 to 6 November, which will give our chartered accountants as well as business leaders, the required leverage to help them comprehend the greater importance of collaborating to compete to help their organisations reach enhanced business success,” he added.
