The evolving global trade environment poses numerous opportunities and challenges to countries like Sri Lanka. In an uncertain economic environment, the impact of Brexit is a development that the private sector needs to monitor. 


The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC) will hold a seminar including a discussion with a diverse panel consisting of trade experts, private sector representative and economists. 
The keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Ganesh Wignaraja (Executive Director of the Lakshman Kadirgamar Institute), who will outline the Brexit process and provide both perspectives of the EU and UK. Dr. Wignaraja will also be discussing the international dimensions of Brexit amidst an uncertain global economic environment, while providing the overarching implications for Sri Lanka.  


Utsav Kumar (Senior Country Economist, Asian Development Bank) in his presentation will provide quantitative estimates of the impact of Brexit, under different scenarios, on world GDP with a focus on developing Asia and Sri Lanka. 


A presentation will be done by Jayani Ratnayake (Economist, CCC) covering the trade, business and investment implications emanating for Sri Lanka from Brexit.                  


The three speakers will then be joined by Nimal Karunathilake, Acting Additional Director General of Commerce and Felix Fernando, Immediate Past Chairman of Sri Lanka Apparel Exporters Association/ Group Director, Omega Line Limited, in a panel discussion moderated by Shiran Fernando, Chief Economist, CCC.
