My Dear Friends,
It’s with great pleasure that I welcome all of you to the official site of the Sri Lanka and Australia Chamber of Commerce (SLACC). SLACC seeks to fill a significant gap in what has otherwise being a long and productive bi- lateral relationship between our two great countries. The numbers clearly show that in terms of trade and commerce, the relationship between Sri Lanka and Australia has been a relatively equitable one, with both countries enjoying the fruits of bi-lateral trade. SLACC will provide the impetus to propel trade between Sri Lanka and Australia to even greater heights. In the coming months we intend to showcase potential business opportunities to our constituent business communities via an active calendar of events. I invite you join us on this exciting commercial journey, where our shared cultural values and aspirations can inform and reform how business gets done between our two great countries.
