‘Stock Market’, ‘Market Regulations’ and ‘Good Governance For New Opportunities’ will be the key topics that will come under discussion during an upcoming seminar organised by the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, Sri Lanka’s premier business chamber.
The seminar, which is to be held on Friday, May 8, at the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, starting at 3:30 p.m., will be addressed by three sector specialists, including officials.
Accordingly, Securities and Exchange Commission of Sri Lanka Deputy Director General Dhammika Perera, Colombo Stock Exchange Head of Research Nishantha Hewawitharana and Candor Equities Group Chief Executive Officer/Director Ravi Abeysuriya are expected to deliver presentations at the upcoming seminar.
Perera will speak on ‘Securities Regulation’, Hewawitharana will speak under the title of ‘Stock Market Perspective’, while Abeysuriya will deliver a presentation under the title of ‘The Sri Lanka Capital Market: Good Governance for New Opportunities’.
The presentations would be followed by a Q&A session, while Ceylon Chamber of Commerce CEO/Secretary General Mangala P.B. Yapa will deliver the introductory speech. Sri Lanka’s Colombo Stock Exchange, despite being a reasonably active debt and equity exchange in the region, still has a long way to go in order to become a major contributor to the economic development.
Its market capitalization is currently over Rs.3 trillion with 297 companies listed on the bourse. Authorities plan to raise the market capitalization to 50 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) when the local GDP goes up to US $ 100 billion.
