The International Chamber of Commerce of Sri Lanka (ICCSL), the local of chapter of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Paris, has set up an Export and Investment Development Committee to assist small & medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and other sectors at large.


The effort will provide a window through the ICC global network for Sri Lankan products to go regional and to get access to international markets given that promoting exports ranks as a top priority for the country. 


ICC was founded in 1919 to serve world business by promoting trade and investment, open markets for goods and services, and the free flow of capital. 

The Export Development Committee will be headed by Omega Line Group Director and former Chairman of the Apparel Exporters Association, Felix Fernando.


The Export Development Committee consists of eighteen members who hold important positions in the local industrial and the financial sector. 


ICCSL Chairman Dinesh Weerakkody said the committee is tasked to connect with the vast network of national committees of the ICC spread across over 130 countries, with a membership of 45 million businesses to explore new markets and establish connections for local companies. In addition, Weerakkody said they are expected to coordinate with the relevant government agencies and other stakeholders to facilitate and address issues the industry has and also arrange trade delegations to explore opportunities for exporting products to other countries.
