Sri Lanka Economic Summit 2016 by The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce

Sri Lanka’s economic growth potential is not unknown. Its strategic geographical location, proximity and access to growing markets in Asia, high basic development indicators, and human and environmental assets, put it on a strong footing to be a star performer in Asia. Yet, the ability to transform this clear potential into strong performance seems to be elusive. What is required now is to move from issues to solutions, from potential to performance, and from rhetoric to action. The focus of this year’s Sri Lanka Economic Summit is precisely that; transforming Sri Lanka’s potential with action.

This year’s Summit brings together a unique mix of those who know it and those who have done it. Speakers include top names from across the world who, through focussed action and high performance, have made progress and made a change. Sessions are structured to ensure that participants understand the issues, but are swiftly moved on to discussing possible solutions and feasible action. Speakers will highlight good practices from other contexts and distill lessons for Sri Lanka’s own economic transformation.

The Session on Private-Public Partnerships will discuss specific actions that need to be taken to mobilise private investment to meet public policy challenges, including good practices in devising PPPs that balance investor and government interests.

The Session on talent and human resources will attempt to overcome conventional thinking, to take a

close look at practical options for Sri Lanka to meet emerging skill needs through liberalizing inward migration for certain sectors, attracting back skilled workers in the diaspora, and improving the climate for young people to thrive.

In the session on Tourism, speakers will discuss what it will take to position Sri Lanka strongly in overseas travel markets, attracting investment and quality tourists, and navigate new challenges brought on by the digital economy and informality.

The session on international logistics and trade will explore what concrete steps need to be taken to leverage on Sri Lanka’s location, including attracting international players into the country’s logistics industry, modernizing infrastructure with private sector partnerships, and linking into global value chains.

In the session on agriculture, speakers will take an incisive look at why existing agricultural and land policies are holding back productivity in the sector, what short and long term options are available to transform plantations given the political economy sensitivities, and how to boost agribusinesses.

With the state-owned enterprise sector still playing a dominant role in the economy and the public sector expected to deliver on economic transformation, the final session will explore what reforms are needed in the public sector to enable faster growth.
