Sri Lanka to host the first ever International Logistics Conference
July 2019

The first ever Colombo International Logistics Conference will be held on August 1st and 2nd at Galadari Hotel, Colombo. 20 international speakers will join to discuss modern logistics trends, South Asia's logistics market and the emerging role of Sri Lanka as a global logistics centre. Delegates attending this conference will get an understanding of the ports of Sri Lanka and of the newly emerging port city. SriLankan Airlines is the official airline partner of the Conference.

An eight-hour flying time radius connects the island to more than 50 per cent of the world's population. As a major tourist hot spot in the world, Sri Lanka is ideal for expats to have headquarter operations as there are special laws and tax concessions for such investments. Ideally located to have storage and distribution centres, almost all major global shipping lines use Colombo as the main port for transshipment and Hambantota as the biggest ro-ro facility in South Asia.
