The insightful exploration commenced with Mr. Athula Ranaweera, Managing Partner, Ranaweera Associates, and Ms. Sarah Afker, Partner, Tax Services, BDO Partners, presenting the highlights of the National Budget for 2024.

The highlights were followed by a panel discussion which ensured a dynamic exchange of ideas and provided a cohesive narrative featuring Ms. Thanuja Perera, Tax Policy Advisor, Ministry of Finance, Mr. Upul Jayawardhana, Acting Commissioner General, Department of Inland Revenue, Dr. Nishan De Mel, Executive Director, Verité Research, Mr. Bingumal Thewarathanthri, CEO, Standard Chartered Bank, Mr. Udeeshan Jonas, Chief Strategist, Capital Alliance, and Mr. Hasitha Premaratne, Managing Director, Brandix Group. The session was moderated by Mr. Heshana Kuruppu.

The Annual Budget Seminar organised by CA Sri Lanka is one of the Institute’s most sought-after annual events due to the comprehensive overview it provides its diverse audience on the national budget every year.
