The Sri Lanka – Greater Mekong Business Council (SLGMBC) of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, organized a successful Business Promotion Mission to Myanmar, recently.  The delegates met with the Ambassador of Sri Lanka in Myanmar and attended the Yangon Investment Forum organized by the Yangon Regional Government. The Council together with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) Myanmar organized an information session for delegates, which was followed by individual meetings between delegates and potential business partners in Myanmar, based on the requirements of each delegate. Delegates from Member Companies that participated in this business promotion mission were successful in establishing contact with potential business partners, while some of these Companies are about to conclude agreements with their counterparts.
