Seylan Bank PLC recently entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with National Chamber of Exporters of Sri Lanka (NCE), reviving a strategic partnership with the NCE to boost Sri Lankan exports in global markets.
Taking the first step towards a long standing journey, the agreement was exchanged on February 10, at Seylan Bank Head Office with the presence of senior officials of both organizations.
Through this strategic alliance, Seylan Bank will support member exporters of the Chamber who are either looking to gain a foothold in overseas markets or to expand the markets share they have already established.
This relationship will enable all export oriented ventures especially start-ups and SME Exporters to obtain a range of financial services as well as advisory needs from the bank. As foreign exchange income is a critical requirement, this partnership will serve to develop and sustain Sri Lankan exports to supply high quality products/services to the global market and increase foreign exchange earnings, ensuring the country gains financial stability. Thus, this long standing partnership will add significant value in growing exports overall, whilst securing economic stability and resilience of the Country.
The partnership will make NCE members increasingly aware of Seylan Bank’s many export-friendly offerings, programs and services they can use to penetrate global markets. It will, in effect, create a virtuous cycle that benefits the country, the NCE membership, and the bank itself. Our aim is to facilitate both Seylan Bank and member exporters of the Chamber through various programs conducted by us including the NCE Annual Awards, the flagship event of the NCE, a senior Chamber official stated.
“Seylan Bank is delighted to partner with the National Chamber of Exporters to support and uplift Sri Lankan Exporters,”Kapila Ariyaratne, Director and Chief Executive Officer of Seylan Bank.
