Hayleys powers CASL with lead sponsorship
Hayleys PLC will power the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri
Lanka (CASL) with a lead sponsorship.
This is the first time, Hayleys will extend its support to CA Sri
Lanka to carry out its educational and professional activities for the
benefit of members, students and the public.
Officials of Hayleys and CASL exchange the agreement.
The sponsorship cheque was handed over to CA Sri Lanka President
Arjuna Herath by Hayleys Chairman and Chief Executive Mohan Pandithage
at the Hayleys Head Office recently.
CASL President Arjuna Herath said that it was indeed a pleasure for
CA Sri Lanka to have the support of a leading conglomerate such as
Hayleys to complement its development activities.
"I believe this partnership will tremendously benefit both
organisations alike," he said.
Herath said that having Hayleys as lead sponsor is also an
endorsement of the institute's mission to continue to serve society by
promoting and developing the accountancy sector continuously.
Embracing innovation and entrepreneurship, over the years, Hayleys
has added value for people and businesses across the country and beyond.
In addition to Sri Lanka, Hayleys today has manufacturing facilities
in Indonesia and Thailand, and marketing operations in Australia, India,
Bangladesh, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, UK and the USA. The Group
accounts for 3.17% of Sri Lanka's export income and 4.5% of tea and 2.2%
of rubber production.
