Over 250 educational institutions, 20 countries at EDEX Expo 2012

EDEX Expo 2012, Sri Lanka's premier higher education and careers expo is drawing 250 educational institutions and participation from 20 countries at the event in January 2012 in Colombo and Kandy.
Held for the 9th consecutive year and organised by the Royal College Union, the event is the largest showcase of higher education, vocational training and skills development options to date, with the greatest participation of foreign and local education providers.

EDEX Chairman EDEX, Kamal Abeysinghe said in a statement issued by the organisers (EDEX), "Sri Lanka is following a speedy development path and the demand for a skilled and better-educated workforce is on the rise. Therefore, the aspirations amongst the youth for higher paying careers are also on the increase. In such a context, making our youth ‘industry ready’ by providing access to the right education and market-relevant skills, leading to gainful employment in a timely manner is vital. This is one reason why we embraced and nurtured the vision of making Sri Lankan youth globally competitive through world-class education, numerous career choices, and opportunities showcased in a single platform at the EDEX Expo for the past 8 years.”

The Colombo event will have five exhibition halls, with the exhibitors representing over 250 institutions and universities from over 20 countries. A number of participants are professional institutes of the highest calibre that offer world class education. Several of the participants represent international universities from the West, the Middle East, South Asia and many more; looking to add prospective Sri Lankan students to their ranks, the organisers said.
