21st Annual NCE Awards ends with glamour and prestige

The National Chamber of Exporters of Sri Lanka which is the only Chamber dedicated to exclusively serve the exporters, held its 21st Annual NCE Export Awards Ceremony recently, at the Hilton Colombo.

A special feature of the scheme this year was the inclusion of three special awards (Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards) for the three best innovative exporters. This move has been made by the Chamber in recognition of the importance of innovation by Sri Lankan exporters to survive in the fiercely competitive international markets. For this purpose, the Chamber has entered into a collaboration with the National Science Foundation (NSF) to encourage and materially assist the efforts made by exporters at innovation to develop high tech innovative products, since Sri Lanka lags far behind other competitor countries in this respect, including neighbouring countries in the Asian Region.

The prestige and high standard of this unique event would not have been possible without the magnanimous contributions made by the sponsors of the event.
