The session would be chaired by Ceylon Chamber of Commerce Chief Economist Anushka Wijesinha.

It will also focus on whether the China’s growth troubles pose risks throughout Asia, whether growth recovery in Europe is an unlikely prospect and how these elements will effect Sri Lankan businesses, particularly exporters.
