As such, intending to give Sri Lankan businesses an overall understanding of how they can benefit from the opportunities offered in these prospering economies, PwC Sri Lanka has collaborated with the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce to hold a discussion on Market Opportunities and Entry Strategies into the South East Asia markets ( SEA) to be held on the 13th of October 2021.
The discussion will feature consultants with experience across the South East Asian Region, each of whom has garnered a solid reputation of having helped many companies to expand to Southeast Asia, from the smallest startup to some of the largest MNCs.
These consultants will illustrate the opportunities in Southeast Asia and delve into areas covering growth drivers in the region. Additionally, the consultants will discuss some commonly faced challenges for companies entering the region such as company structure and functions, tax and legal barriers, and strategic challenges for scaling up operations in the region.
Giving an insight into the goal of this discussion, Channa Manoharan, COO and Advisory Leader at PwC Sri Lanka stated “Southeast Asia has been riding on the wave of globalization that has brought benefits and economic growth with expanding trade and investment linkages. It is therefore important that Sri Lankan companies reap these opportunities and blaze a trail in these markets for their products and services.”
Prajeeth Balasubramaniam, Chairperson, Council for Startups of The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce and Chairperson, Sri Lanka Singapore Business Council of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce stated “We are pleased to collaborate with PwC on this knowledge sharing webinar focused on helping identify some of the challenges faced by companies expanding into the Southeast Asian region. The members of the Sri Lanka – Singapore Business Council and Council for Startups, and the wider Sri Lankan ecosystem, are all keen to expand into the SEA region and will benefit from this event”
With an overall aim of propelling discussions towards building up knowledge, opportunities and access to the leading and fast-growing South-East Asian markets, this webinar is ideally targeted to both SME’s and leading exporters.
