Sri Lanka’s State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) has been the topic of debate for many years now. Discussions around it have covered improving profitability, service and governance while examining the root causes for the continued losses incurred by SOEs. Some of the solutions for reforms are well known, but its implementation has been weak – leading to no notable development of the sector in the last decade . The Sri Lanka Economic Summit (SLES) 2019 will look at charting the progress in reforming SOEs over the next five years. This will be addressed at a panel discussion on State-Owned Enterprises – Recipe for Reform, on 18 September.

The session will focus on fine-tuning existing solutions and implementation, gaining consensus by bringing together different stakeholders, ranging from politicians, to technocrats. Moderated by Mr. Suresh Shah, Past Chairman of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, the panel will feature Hon. Eran Wickramaratne, State Minister of Finance; Hon. Dr. Sarath Amunugama, MP; Hon. Sunil Handunnetti, MP; Mr. Murtaza Jafferjee, CEO, JB Securities Ltd; Mr. Thilan Wijesinghe, Chairman, National Agency for Public Private Partnership, Ministry of  Finance & Media, and Dr. Nalaka Godahewa, Chairman, Helicon Corporate Consultancy.

 The SLES is scheduled for 17 and 18 September, at the Cinnamon Grand. For further information regarding the event, please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
