Charitha Subasinghe, Vice President / Chief Executive Officer of John Keells Holdings PLC and Chairman of the Sri Lanka Retail Forum 2018, and Mrs. Dhara Wijayatilake, Chief Executive officer of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce.



The Sri Lanka Retailers’ Association (SLRA) recently signed a memorandum of understanding with the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, for support in organizing and coordinating the Sri Lanka Retail Forum for the 2nd consecutive year.


With last year’s Retail Forum seeing success in creating a platform for the Retail Industry to discuss challenges and explore new strategies, the SLRA will be organizing the forum for the 2nd consecutive year this October. This year’s forum seeks to discuss methods of reshaping customer engagement, generating further digitization in the industry at large, building a competitive brand culture through sustainable practice, propelling the local retail industry, and exploring a tourism-retail nexus.  


Much untapped potential lies within the Sri Lankan Retail Industry and the SLRA’s aim through this forum is to draw out the potential, to explore new strategies, and to regenerate retail companies in Sri Lanka, in order to cater to the fast-paced, dynamic market, both in the region and globally. The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce partnered with the SLRA in support of this endeavor last year and continues to do so this year as well.


The Sri Lanka Retail Forum 2018 is set to take place on 17th and 18th October, at the Cinnamon Grand, Oak Room. Registration for the forum will commence from September 2018 ending on 15, October 2018.  For further details contact Niroshini Sivagananathan on 11 5588852 (Dir), or This email address is being protected from spambots.
