The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC), the premier business chamber in the country, walked away with a Gold under the Not for Profit Organisations (NPO), including Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO) sector at the 52nd Annual Report Awards of the CA Sri Lanka.
CCC Deputy Secretary General and Financial Controller Alikie Perera accepted the award on behalf of the CCC. The CCC first entered this competition in 2006 and has won awards each year thereafter. This is the eighth time the chamber has won the Gold under this category since winning for the first time in the year 2007.
With a history spanning over five decades, the Annual Report Awards Competition has helped Sri Lankan firms improve transparency and accountability in financial reporting, while also enhancing Sri Lanka’s reporting standards in line with global best practices.
The competition, which selects winners based on highly stringent criteria evaluated by a panel of judges consisting of professionals from both the private and public sectors, honours the most cohesive, clear and customized annual reports that best reflect an entity’s operations and recognizes those that have gone beyond the statutory boundaries of reporting.
Commenting on this achievement, CCC CEO Dhara Wijayatilake said, “While being extremely proud of the chamber team for sustaining high standards, the award also stands testimony to the high importance we place on being an organisation that places value on transparency and accountability. The chamber will continue its commitment to maintain high standards of governance in compliance with our core principle of being a responsible organisation, serving the country.”
