The Ceylon National Chamber of Industries (CNCI) has planned the official launch and media briefing of CNCI Achiever Awards 2016 for industrial excellence to be held at Salon Anthurium of Hotel Galadari on February 9, 2016 at 6:00 p.m.
It is a unique event where the CNCI, the premier industrial chamber in the country, recognizes the Sri Lankan industrialists for their achievements both in the manufacturing and service sectors.
The Achiever Awards have been designed by the CNCI to promote industrial growth in the country by recognizing and rewarding those industrialists who have excelled in their businesses in the areas of quality standards, productivity, employee benefits, labour relations, etc., while assuring concerns over the social and environmental obligations and to encourage these enterprises to reach further heights in their spheres of operation.
The Sri Lankan industries operating in SAARC countries too are eligible to participate in the competition. Also, SAARC country-specific industries, which will be nominated and recommended by their respective chambers of commerce and industry, can compete to receive SAARC country-specific Gold awards.
According to CNCI Chairman Tissa Seneviratne, the objective of such an awarding system is to establish closer bilateral relations and enhancement of goodwill between Sri Lanka and the countries of the SAARC region.
This is a valuable opportunity to all industrial entrepreneurs of Extra Large, Large, Medium, Small and Micro categories, in provincial and national levels, to participate.
“We are certainly proud to mention that the CNCI Achiever Awards competition has been able to produce a number of industrialists to the country who have become highly reputed and leading businessmen in Sri Lanka today,” Seneviratne said.
At the last year’s event, the CNCI had two companies in the categories of Extra Large and Medium, which received ‘Crystal’ awards on their successful winning of the Gold award for three consecutive years.
There are also companies that initially contested under the categories of Small and Medium but are in the categories of Large and Extra Large today.
These are, of course, the success stories behind the Achiever Awards event organised
by the CNCI.
“We have also planned an awareness campaign through some selected regional chambers covering all parts of the
island, giving special emphasis to
the North and East,”
Applicants for the CNCI Achiever Awards are subjected to a stringent evaluation procedure by an eminent panel of judges. The presentation of awards will take place on August 5, 2016 at Galadari Hotel Colombo.
Applications will be available at the CNCI Chamber Secretariat, Galle Face Court 2, Colombo 3 and all regional chambers or they can be downloaded from the CNCI website - www.cnci.lk - after February 9, 2016.
