Global giant Standard Chartered Bank (SCB), the strategic partner of the unique pre-Budget forum organised by the Daily FT and Colombo University MBA Alumni Association for the past eight consecutive years, is extending its support further by backing the two organisations’ most sought after post-Budget forum as well.  SCB’s decision to be the strategic partner for the post-Budget forum is part of its commitment to support Sri Lanka and its private sector to achieve higher socio-economic growth. The 2019 post-Budget forum will be held on 6 March at Kings Court, Cinnamon Lakeside, and will feature a top panel of private sector leaders and professionals. Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera has promised the 2019 Budget will be important and interesting.
