 The British Sri Lanka Chamber of Commerce (BSLCC) has formed a strategic partnership with the Ceylon Chamber Of Commerce and Commonwealth Business Council (CBC) to promote the forthcoming Commonwealth Business Forum to be held in Colombo from November 12-14 in conjunction with the bi-annual Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.

At a recent meeting at the CBC offices in Pall Mall, Chairman BSLCC, Jayampathi Perera and  Deputy Chairman Philip Brown have had extensive discussions with Peter Callaghan, the  Director General of the Commonwealth Business Council, to adopt a  suitable strategy to promote the event not only within the membership of the Chamber but also with external trade and professional organizations and individual companies who may be interested to  expand their business network.

During their discussions, it was highlighted that the BSLCC is not only promoting the event as an  opportunity to evaluate business opportunities in Sri Lanka, but also opportunities throughout  the entire Commonwealth of 54 countries.

Both Perera and Brown emphasized that this Forum provides a unique platform for networking with important government officials and business leaders from so many Commonwealth countries with endless potential. They also confirmed that during the Forum the Government of Sri Lanka will be showcasing vast range  of lucrative  projects which foreign delegates to the forum will have the opportunity to evaluate.

BSLCC is also in discussion with a number of trade organisations outside the Commonwealth who have shown keen interest in joining the Forum in order to establish trading links throughout the Commonwealth.  In addition, during a recent visit to Colombo by   Perera he was assured of support for a Chamber delegation by British High Commissioner John Rankin and Michael Halpin, Senior Representative of UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) in Sri Lanka.
