The International Chamber of Commerce Sri Lanka (ICCSL) joined the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) as a promotional partner to promote the Invest Sri Lanka forum which recently concluded in Singapore.  The event drew in a large number of not only institutional investors but also investors interested in investing in large long-term projects in Sri Lanka and high net worth individuals. The ICCSL is the domestic chapter of the Paris-based international world business organisation, the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). ICCSL was instrumental in connecting the Singapore Business Federation (SBF), through ICC Singapore, to be a strategic partner of this event.  SBF is the apex Business Chamber in Singapore representing 24,200 companies. SBF Honorary Treasurer Lawrence Leow, addressing the forum, reiterated their commitment to promote bilateral trade opportunities between the two countries, which has been fast tracked with the signing of the Singapore Sri Lanka Free Trade Agreement in January 2018. ICCSL was represented at this forum by ICC Sri Lanka Secretary Shanil Fernando and ICC Sri Lanka Treasurer Sheanath De Zoysa.
