Commenting on the partnership, the CEO of the CSE, Rajeeva Bandaranaike, stated, "It is crucial to promote financial literacy among Sri Lankans, especially among undergraduates, who are a key segment of the population equipped to contribute to a stable economy in the future. Taking cognizance of this objective, we are pleased to partner with the Eastern University, Sri Lanka, in a productive line of initiatives to promote a financially literate undergraduate population for the sustainable growth of the economy in Sri Lanka.”

The Vice Chancellor of the Eastern University, Sri Lanka, Prof. V. Kanagasingam, also shared his views and thanked the Colombo Stock Exchange for signing the Memorandum of Understanding with the Eastern University, Sri Lanka, to bring more opportunities to both parties.
