‘Invest Sri Lanka’ at iconic NASDAQ market site
Representatives of the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) and the Securities and Exchange Commission of Sri Lanka (SEC) were recently hosted by NASDAQ at the NASDAQ Market Site – the commercial marketing presence of the NASDAQ stock market and the location for the Market Bell Ceremonies at New York’s Times Square.
The visit was conducted on the sidelines of the ‘Invest Sri Lanka’ capital market promotion in New York and included a discussion between the Sri Lankan delegation and NASDAQ Vice Chairman Meyer ‘Sandy’ Frucher. The SEC was represented by commission members Ranel Wijesinha, Dilshani Wijayawardana and Director General Vajira Wijegunawardane while the CSE was represented by Chairman Ray Abeywardena, CEO Rajeeva Bandaranaike, Head of Market Development Niroshan Wijesundere and Senior Executive Sheraj Obeyesekere.
The Invest Sri Lanka Forum, organised by the CSE and SEC in New York, drew strong interest among the investor community in New York, where remarks made by policymakers and capital market leaders on the economic outlook of the country and investment opportunities surrounding progressive reforms were well-received.
