LankaPay – Sri Lanka’s Trusted National Payment Network for the first time came on board as a sponsor of the coveted National Exporters Awards.

A press briefing on the same was held recently at Hilton Colombo, where the sponsorship was formally awarded.

Speaking at the event, Mr. Channa de Silva, General Manager/ CEO of LankaClear (Pvt) Ltd said “ Exports form the backbone on which the economy is built upon in our country. Hence, this initiative by the National Chamber of Exporters to recognize the outstanding exporters of this country will encourage them to add even greater value to the economy in the future. LankaClear is extremely pleased to support the 24th National Exporters Awards, for the first time, as a national initiative. We, as the operator of Sri Lanka’s National Payment Network – LankaPay and under the guidance and supervision of Central Bank, facilitate all domestic interbank payments and settlements in a fast, secure, convenient and affordable manner. These were previously carried out by foreign networks costing the country millions of dollars. By doing so, we are helping the nation to  save substantial amount of valuable foreign exchange. We believe that our participation at this important event signifies the importance of national initiatives, such as ours,  which helps to retain the hard earned foreign exchange by the exporters.”
