The objective of the LEED project is to promote inclusive economic development among the people in the Northern Province, creating decent employment and long-term sustainable livelihoods. It recognizes the important role of the private sector, and especially the export sector to achieve these objectives.
We would like you to participate at the awareness seminar organized by the Chamber jointly with the ILO to create awareness on the available produces in the Northern Province for your exports.
During the past few months, the NCE has led delegations to the North and has successfully linked Exporters with Producers through mutually benefiting programmes.
As at today CR Exports, HJS Condiments and Rabeena Foods have already established business linkages.

During the past 12 months the Chamber has actively participated in many trade promotional events in countries such as The UAE, Myanmar, China, Maldives and The UK. The proposed Visits are based on the inputs that the Chamber has received from member companies. The selected countries are potential markets for development and also emerging markets for new products.
Business meetings in these proposed countries will be arranged in consultation with the Sri Lankan Missions and the relevant business chambers.
The Ambassador of Czech Republic accredited to Sri Lanka and based in New Delhi visited the NCE recently, and assured his assistance to set up meetings for the delegates, with potential business contacts in the Czech Republic . The NCE is also in touch with the Trade Chambers and relevant associations in those proposed countries who have shown interest in inviting their members for meetings based on the company and product profiles of the members of the delegation.
