|Sri Lanka Apparel Brand Association launches|
The Sri Lanka Apparel Brands Association (SLABA) was formally launched under the distinguished patronage of Economic Development Minister Hon. Basil Rajapaksa and a large gathering of key apparel industry players at the Cinnamon Lakeside Hotel Colombo on 20th June 2014.
Celebrating the occasion, the Association’s new website was also formally launched by the Hon. Minister Basil Rajapaksa. SLABA’s objectives are to gain both local and international recognition as the hub of Sri Lanka’s apparel brands, operating as a facilitator to develop the apparel brands segment among newcomers to the industry and seek to take Sri Lankan brands to the international arena and establish them globally recognized brands.
The Association plans to expand market opportunities through the introduction of International Market Places (as in Thailand, Indonesia and China) for tourists and business travelers with a variety catering to all segments. SLABA will also shape the policies that impact the apparel industry in the domestic market through dynamic lobbying with both government and non-government organizations.
