Apr 29, Colombo: The National Chamber of Commerce of Sri Lanka has organized an awareness seminar on the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) with India.

The seminar titled "Implications of CEPA on Sri Lanka's Economy" will be held Wednesday 29 April 2015 from 3.00 pm to 5.00 pm at the Chamber Auditorium at 450 D. R. Wijewardene Mawatha, Colombo-10.

The National Chamber of Commerce says it is seriously concerned over the proposed signing of the CEPA with India.

The Chamber says it is of the view that before the authorities come to a conclusion, the CEPA Agreement should be analyzed in greater detail as regards the implications involved, advantages/disadvantages and most of all how it will affect the economy, business and industries in Sri Lanka.

Prominent business leaders from the private sector and high level government officials are scheduled to address the session and air their views on CEPA.

Deputy Minister of Policy Planning and Economic Affairs, economist Dr. Harsha de Silva will deliver the Keynote Address.
