Economic Outlook 2018
The Economic Outlook’18, which was organized by the Business Economics Students’ Association was successfully held on November 21, 2018 at the Professor Jayarathna Auditorium of the Faculty of Management and Finance. This event was structured to provide refreshing experience to undergraduates to enhance their knowledge on all aspects of economy and development of Sri Lanka. This event was attended by Dr. Indrajith Coomaraswamy (Governor of Central Bank Sri Lanka), Mr. Dharmadasa Rangalle (Senior Tax Commissioner at the Department of Inland Revenue), Mr. Johnathan Abeywickrema (Director of Lanka Investing Network) and Mr. Dulith Herath (Founder of Kapruka) to address the gathering.
With over 200 undergraduates participating from both public and private universities, The Economic Outlook’18 created a platform for undergraduates not only to broaden their knowledge in the field of economics but also to develop interaction between different universities in similar areas of interest. It was helpful to broaden the students’ organizing capacities of events in this nature.

Dharmadasa, the Dean of Faculty of Management and Finance, Mr. M. Ramesh Rajasuriya, the Head of the Business Economics Department and senior academic staff members of the Department.
