Seminar on Brexit by the Ceylon Chamber on May 24


The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce will organize a seminar under the theme ‘Brexit and its Implications to Sri Lanka’. The seminar serves as an important opportunity to understand both the outlook for the economy and key sectors in 2019.

The United Kingdom’s decision to exit the European Union and the subsequent developments since then has resulted in uncertainty for global trade and financial markets. Brexit remains a major concern for the country given it is Sri Lanka’s 2nd largest export destination with an export value of over USD 1 billion.

Dr. Ganesh Wignaraja (Executive Director of Lakshman Kadirgamar Institute), Utsav Kumar (Senior Country Economist, Asian Development Bank) and Ms. Jayani Ratnayake (Economist, The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce) will be the key presenters.

Thereafter Nimal Karunathilake (Acting Addl. Director General of Commerce), Felix Fernando (Immediate Past Chairman of Sri Lanka Apparel Exporters Association/ Group Director, Omega Line Limited) and Utsav Kumar (Senior Country Economist, Asian Development Bank), will take part in a panel discussion moderated by Shiran Fernando (Chief Economist, The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce).

The Brexit seminar will take place on May 24, 2019 at the Chamber auditorium starting at 9a.m. For registration contact 11 55 888 82 or email [email protected] / [email protected]
