HLB’s recent 2018 Asia Pacific conference in Colombo, Sri Lanka was attended by 60 delegates from 20 HLB network countries. The conference was hosted by HLB’s local member firm Nihal Hettiarachchi & Company.

The theme of the conference “Excellence through Unity”, brought together 11 distinguished guest speakers, from government officials to client representatives, including keynote speaker Eran Wickramaratne, State Minister of Finance and Mass Media.

HLB Indian Sub-continental and HLB Greater China Meetings were held in conjunction with the Asia Pacific conference.

Dinuk Hettiarachchi, Managing Partner of Nihal Hettiarachchi & Company said: “It was a pleasure to host the HLB delegates in Sri Lanka which gave us an opportunity to showcase our beautiful island and to promote Sri Lanka as a regional business hub to international corporations who intend to carry out business in this region. Further, the close relationships established during the conference will certainly go a long way to enhance the referral business between the HLB member firms.”

HLB holds a number of regional conferences each year, which are an opportunity for HLB professionals to network together.
