The signing of the agreement was held at NDB Head Office with the patronage of senior officials from the bank and IFC.
Speaking at this signing NDB Director/ CEO Dimantha Seneviratne said: “We take great pleasure in having to work closely with IFC to take this initiative forward and work with a panel of experienced advisory service providers. NDB acknowledges IFC’s support and look forward for a fruitful partnership going forward.”
IFC Country Manager for Sri Lanka and Maldives, AmenaArif said: “IFC has worked closely with NDB in the past and has a strong relationship going back several years. We are pleased to support NDB in achieving its strategic goals for 2020 and beyond.”
