“As Sri Lanka’s single largest tea producer, it is our distinct pleasure to support the Colombo Tea Traders Association in their efforts to host Colombo International Tea Convention 2017. Given that this is a milestone year for our industry, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary of cultivation, we believe that this year’s convention will be an ideal opportunity to bring together the best local and international minds together on a single platform and deliberate on the many challenges and opportunities facing tea producers, and exporters alike,” Pananwala stated.
First hosted in 2012, the Colombo International Tea Convention is anticipated to draw participation from over 300 international delegates from both tea producing and consuming nations, over and above the substantial participation from domestic tea industry stakeholders.
