The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce is organising a seminar under the theme of ‘Brexit and its Implications to Sri Lanka’ on May 24 at the Chamber auditorium starting at 9.00 am.

The seminar will serve as an important opportunity to understand both the outlook for the economy and key sectors in 2019.

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.
