The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC), the leading business chamber of Sri Lanka won a Gold Award in the Non Profit Organisation/Non Government Organisation category at the 49th Annual Report Awards ceremony organised by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka. Commenting on this achievement Ceylon Chamber of Commerce CEO/Secretary General Harin Malwatte said, “At the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, we are indeed humbled by winning the Gold award yet another year. We believe that this achievement is an honour to good governance and transparency adopted in the workings of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce. Being a business support organisation with a legacy that spans almost 175 years, the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce continuously strives to remain effective and relevant through changing times. This award stands testimony to that.” The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce won the Gold award in the same category in 2012, 2011, 2009, 2008 and 2007 as well as the Silver Award in the 2006 Awards and a Bronze Award in 2010. CCC’s Annual Report 2012/2013 was themed ‘Progressive Action’ as Sri Lanka is gaining momentum to reach the economic targets the country has set for itself in the short and the medium term. And as a Chamber, we are proud to have completed a year in which timely action was consistently and consciously taken to contribute to a more conducive business environment where entrepreneurship and business innovation could prosper. In order for this to occur, we together with our members and stakeholders took timely initiatives in influencing policy dialog with the relevant authorities towards establishing a sustainable economy. The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce hopes to continue this initiative in the years ahead through edification and empowerment for all strata of the business world.
