EXPO trade and investment show to be held next year

Sri Lanka Expo 2012 is back after a lapse of 15 years. Designed as a mega trade, investment and tourism promotion initiative under the theme “Partnering with the hub of Asia”, the event is to be staged in March 2012 at the BMICH. It is set to be a showcase of Sri Lanka’s quality products and services and will display a variety of traditional and non-traditional products under three categories which are Agriculture, Fisheries and Industrial Products and Services.

Speaking at a press conference to launch the event, Janaka Ratnayake, Chairman Sri Lanka Export Development Board (EDB) said that “the exhibition will play a significant role in developing the national economy.”

The objectives of Expo 2012 are twofold, the main objective being to regain the recognition that Sri Lanka enjoyed for decades as a lucrative business destination in Asia and the other to support the local export community to establish reliable and lasting business relationships in key economic activities of trade, investment and tourism.

Speaking further, Ratnayake said that “the exhibition will showcase over 300 stalls, and hopes to cover nearly 1000 products and services and attract over 1000 foreign visitors and that the exhibitors will receive immense local and global outreach through the extensive promotional campaign planned.”"

Speaking at the media briefing, Minister of Industry and Commerce Rishad Bathiudeen said, the total value of local exports have risen from US$ 7.1 billion in 2009 to US$ 8.3billion in 2010, and that the exhibition will also help achieve the national export earnings target of US$ 15billion by the year 2015.”

The Minister also said the government’s policy document, envisages Sri Lanka to be transformed as a strategically important economic centre of the world, providing links between the East and the West.”

Another key feature of Expo 2012 will be the symposium where key local and foreign business magnates will be delivering speeches on selected themes, which is to be held at the newly constructed Centre for the Performing Arts in Colombo.
