The Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Duties Act and Safeguard Measures Act that were passed by the Parliament of Sri Lanka recently are considered important enablers for strengthening trade related legislation framework of Sri Lanka.
The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce is to hold a seminar on April 5, 2018 from 2pm-5pm at the Chamber auditorium to discuss the salient features of the newly enacted legislation.
This will assist local enterprises to be able to correctly identify unfair dumping practices. Further, firms will be able to understand the procedures for complaints against such instances so that applications are effectively processed and accepted, and for investigations for the imposition of anti-dumping duties to be carried out.
In view of this, the seminar will feature presentations by experts from the Department of Commerce and Attorney General’s Department providing insights on the legal aspects of the new legislation, the provisions of the safeguard measures provided by the new legislation, and the implementation process of the enacted legislation.
The panel will also consist of a representative from the Attorney General’s Department along with Gothami Silva (Director of Commerce, Department of Commerce), Hussein Esufally (Chairman, Hemas PLC), Tuli Cooray (Secretary General, JAAF), and additional resource personnel from the Department of Commerce.
“Our intention with this seminar is to provide the private sector with knowledge on these two key acts and the procedure for its implementation,” stated Shiran Fernando, the Chief Economist of the Ceylon Chamber who will moderate the panel discussion.
