Central Bank Governor Dr. Indrajit Coomaraswamy will deliver the 21st Annual Tax Oration organised by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka) on January 19, 2017.
Dr. Coomaraswamy will speak on the topic ‘Revenue-Based Fiscal Consolidation Towards Sustainable Growth’.
Dr. Coomaraswamy was appointed as the 14th Governor of the Central Bank in July 2016. He is a well-known economist and was the former Director Economic Affairs at the Commonwealth Secretariat.
Organised by the CA Sri Lanka Faculty of Taxation, the annual tax oration is a significant event in the institute’s calendar and attracts a large number of professionals, including high-level tax officials from the public sector and members of CA Sri Lanka.
CA Sri Lanka established its Faculty of Taxation in 1995 with the objective of assisting the members to further the knowledge and practice in taxation. The faculty organises various events hosted by eminent professionals to share knowledge on subjects related to taxation.
The medallion to the orator of this event, as in all preceding events, comes from Esmond Satarasinghe, a member of the founding Council of CA Sri Lanka.
