and to draw a road map for the future.
This year's event will comprise sessions titled 'Managing the Fiscal

Competitiveness through higher Productivity', 'Connecting to Untapped
Resources', 'Demography and Skills Development', 'Powering the Nation
for the Future' and 'Challenges to Re-balancing the Economy'.
World renowned speakers will share their insights as speakers and
panelists at the seven sessions of the summit.
This year's theme has been selected after much deliberation and the
Ceylon Chamber believes that it is important to review re-balancing of
the Sri Lankan Economy at the Economic Summit 2013.
Sri Lanka advanced to the lower middle income country status in
January 2010. With the rise in income levels and acceleration of
development in the post-terrorism era the re-balancing of the economy
has become of greater significance. Although it has been taking place on
a need-basis and by policy shift, such as, focus on infrastructure
development, North and the East reconstruction, development of the less
developed regions, priority to agriculture and food security, the Sri
Lanka Economic Summit for 2013 will deliberate on some of the critical
areas that should receive more attention from policy makers.
The Sri Lanka Economic Summit 2013 is the ultimate platform to gain a
comprehensive understanding of the country's economy, the investment
climate and the diverse opportunities available for investors and
