The session titled “Turnaround; Shifting Gear from Slow to Fast Track” which is to be held at Cinnamon Grand on 13th September from 11.30am to 1pm, at the Economic Summit 2018, will focus on game-changers for Sri Lanka.
The session will explore the ways in which Sri Lanka’s future is shaping, and what institutional reforms will be required to create a shift in the economy from a slow to a fast track.
Practical steps required for achieving Vision 2025 will be outlined with a discussion on both the role of the state and enterprises in the realization of the overall vision.
Dr. Harsha De Silva, State Minister of National Policies and economic Affairs, will be the keynote speaker for this session.
