‘Beyond the war’ – Building: Human capital, organisation and economy was the theme of a discussion at the CEO Forum organised by CIMA The Chartered Institute of Management Accountant in collaboration with SIM The Singapore Institute of Management on March 26 in Colombo.

‘When the guns cease to fire, are we ready for peace?’ asked Mourad Mankarios, Principal Coach, SIM at the commencement of his address as the key note speaker at this Forum. In a press release issued by CIMA, Mr Mankarios had emphasised the importance of being ready to take charge of the controllable factors in pursuit of capitalising on opportunities by development of the talent pool of people and constant innovation to give the extra edge in taking the organisation and the economy beyond the spheres of war.

The presentation was followed by a discussion with an eminent panel of business leaders bringing in their wealth of diversified knowledge and experience to this forum. This session was moderated by Nihal Fonseka, Chairman, Colombo Stock Exchange who said FDIs can achieve the required level of development and expressed that there’s a higher possibility of attracting the necessary capital flow given the end of the war.

As a panel member Rohantha Athukorala, Director Economic Affairs, Secretariat for Coordinating the Peace Process provided an insight into the current economic impact of war. He indicated that the war has costed approximately US$ 20 billion to the economy.
