The national telecommunications provider, Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT), has once again extended their support as a lead sponsor to the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka).
SLT’s persistent support to the national accounting body is a strong endorsement of SLT’s confidence in the professional development activities carried out by CA Sri Lanka.
SLT CEO Lalith De Silva said Sri Lanka Telecom is happy to come forward once again as the lead sponsor for CA Sri Lanka for the year 2013/2014.
“Sri Lanka is now in the best possible phase in time, in the course of its history. This post-war period holds great opportunities for our country to come up and make our mark in the world. The private sector has a major role to play during this period to help expedite economic growth, working in line with the initiatives of the Government.
“As an established and stable corporate entity, as well as the national telecommunication service provider, Sri Lanka Telecom is committed to fulfilling our duties and responsibilities to our nation by being a key driver of this growth by supporting local industries and talents with the ultimate aim of driving economic development in the country.
“Therefore we take great pride and pleasure in extending our support to the prestigious and well deserving organisations such as CA Sri Lanka that share in our dreams and aspirations of building up our nation and people. On behalf of Sri Lanka telecom, I extend our best wishes to CA Sri Lanka for their continued success in the coming years,” De Silva added.
Welcoming SLT onboard once again, CA Sri Lanka President Sujeewa Rajapakse expressed his appreciation to SLT for the invaluable support extended to the institute.
“The support we have received from Sri Lanka Telecom over the years is valued very much and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship in the years to come, which will ultimately result in the long term development of our nation,” Rajapakse added.
