We look forward to extending our hospitality to ASOCIO in June," said Chairman FITIS Govind Nangrani. "FITIS represents Sri Lanka in the ASOCIO and works towards the growth of the local industry".

ASOCIO comprises around 25 member countries including Australia, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and India with the UK, Russia, US and France as guest members, to allow knowledge sharing and business/industry development in the region.

It has been contributing to the growth of the Information Technology sector of the country for the past 15 years generating job opportunities and growing awareness to grassroot levels.
