Sri Lanka Economic Summit 2017, organised by the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, will conduct a dedicated thematic session to discuss how Sri Lanka can transform its economy through the adoption of technology.
The session titled ‘Transforming the Economy through Technology’ will line up the likes of LIRNEasia Founding Chair Prof. Rohan Samarjiva, Bkash Limited Chief Executive Officer Kamal Quadir, Coordinating Secretariat for Science, Technology and Innovation Project Director Prof. Ajith De Alwis, MillenniumIT General Manager Gehan Dias, CIC Holdings PLC Managing Director Samantha Ranatunga and Academy of Design Founder Linda Speldewinde. Martin & George (Pvt.) Limited Chairman Dumindra Ratnayake will moderate the session.
The speakers will focus on the areas of technological advances Sri Lankan manufacturers should adopt to transform the sector and ignite fresh competitiveness, how digital technologies can help transform the local agriculture sector, how to improve the national innovation ecosystem to support the transformation and the lessons Sri Lanka can draw from international experiences.
The all-important session was drafted into this year’s summit taking into consideration the fact that many of Sri Lanka’s key sectors are lagging behind its global competitors due to a lack of technological advancement and risk getting left behind in a dynamic and competitive global economy. The two-day annual summit will take place on July 25 and 26, 2017 at Cinnamon Grand Hotel, Colombo under the title of ‘Execute – Transform - Realize’.
Sunshine Holdings PLC comes in as the Platinum sponsor of the event, Standard Chartered Bank enters the fray as the Gold sponsor, Fonterra Brands as the Silver sponsor and Dialog Axiata is the Telecommunications partner. Whilst Janashakthi Insurance, Prima Group and Nestle Lanka join in as the strategic partners, Echo Wave comes in as the Digital Events Platform partner and OMD of OmniCom MediaGroup is the communications partner.
