A new board was elected for Sri Lanka Singapore Business Council during its 13th Annual General Meeting that was held recently at the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce.
Shamil Mendis, Group Director of Delmege Forsyth & Co., Ltd was elected President of the Council for the year 2010/2011. Mr. Mendis, in his address, stated that the Council with its membership of over 50 reputed companies serves as a recognized representative of the business sector facilitating the exchange of information on trade, investment and engaging in other relevant activities to strengthen and expand business relations between Sri Lanka and Singapore.

In this regard, a highly successful seminar was held in Singapore by International Enterprise (IE) Singapore in collaboration with the Sri Lanka Singapore Business Council and the Sri Lanka High Commission in Singapore.
