President’s Message - June 2014
I am happy as the incoming President to issue this short message in the first release of the Newsletter in this session. New Council of the ACESL elected for the session 2014/15 will continue with the programmes planned in the previous session. At present the discussions are underway to hold a FIDIC training workshop in May /June period. The Council of the ACESL is in discussion with ADB and JICA to obtain financial assistance to meet the cost. The details of the workshop will be finalized shortly.
NEDA of Thailand has indicated their interest in investing Sri Lanka with lending on concessionary/commercial terms. The Council has already initiated action to coordinate with External Resources Department (ERD) in this regard. It is expected that ACESL will be able to play a key role in local consultancy works in this affair. More on this to be expected in the coming months.
I expect the active participation of all the members in the future events of ACESL in this session.
Eng. (Dr.) Kamal Laksiri
