WEDF’s 16th edition in Sri Lanka

NIOSHThe 16th edition of the World Export Development Forum (WEDF) will be held on 12th and 13th October at BMICH in Colombo.

The two-day forum is organized by the International Trade Center (ITC) in collaboration with the Sri Lankan Ministry of Development Strategies and International Trade, through the Export Development Board of Sri Lanka.

WEDF at its 16th edition themed ‘Trade for Success: Connect, Compete, Change’, expects to attract nearly 400 foreign delegates and 300 local business leaders and entrepreneurs.

According to the State Minister of Development Strategies and International Trade Sujeewa Senasinghe, Sri Lanka was able to grab this valuable opportunity to hold such an international forum in Sri Lanka due to international recognition received after the 8th January 2015. “It is our next goal to attract the World Economic Summit to Sri Lanka”, he added.

The department assists media in a macro level in welfare, training, policy planning and accreditation, and providing easy access to Government news and information.
