The theme for the 20th Sri Lanka Economic Summit is based on developing a roadmap for economic take-off for Sri Lanka leveraging on the key policy levers to ensure a successful economic recovery.
SLES 2020 will bring together key policymakers, business leaders, top international thought leaders and experts in devising this roadmap. The theme has been suitably chosen to reflect the need to emerge stronger with the setback due to the pandemic and use it as an opportunity to realign the country’s economic and development targets.
Each session will discuss a different aspect of the economic take-off with the initial sessions focusing on the global and local macroeconomic developments and the role of private sector in driving growth. There will be sessions focusing on domestic manufacturing, agriculture, tourism and technology and the role each sector will play in the economic revival process. To complement this, the role of government and state enterprises will be in focus as well.
