The National Chamber of Commerce of Sri Lanka is proud and happy to announce the launch of ‘fromSriLanka.com’ platform, aimed at supporting Sri Lankan companies to promote their products and services into the global market.
Sri Lanka is best known currently for its tea, rubber, coconut products and apparel in the global market while the country has many other unique products that only Sri Lanka can offer, most of them eco-friendly and made by small manufacturers. Sadly, there is no viable digital platform to encourage global traders in connecting with the local suppliers in Sri Lanka. FromSriLanka.com strives to fill this glaring gap providing an online platform to connect Sri Lankan suppliers and our unique products with the rest of the world.
Catering to a range of categories from tea, rubber, coconut, spices and ayurvedic items to apparel, gemstones, and furniture or services such as software development to BPO solutions, fromSriLanka.com helps global traders to source suitable Sri Lankan suppliers who can add something different to their product catalogue. The platform does not intend to execute any ecommerce transactions except when samples shipping is required so will not have a shopping cart as a feature but will be designed to match and directly connect global traders with Sri Lankan companies so that they could transact offline using the most suitable methods of commerce they prefer.
The platform is developed using the latest web technologies with performance and security in mind and will be hosted within the Oracle cloud, through a partnership. It uses responsive web design suitable for any PC, mobile phone or tablet using the most popular browsers.
The National Chamber of Commerce of Sri Lanka will also initiate programs to support such export-oriented Sri Lankan companies on the platform with knowledge, training and other support services to enhance their products, services and communications to meet export standards. The NCCSL intends to partner with other trade associations and regional Chambers to extend these services to their membership and will seek government and foreign donor support to promote the platform and support the supplier companies.
FromSriLanka.com platform is bound to make a significantly positive effect in promoting foreign trade and earning valuable foreign exchange into Sri Lanka and would create a new era for Sri Lankan products in the global market.
The National Chamber of Commerce of Sri Lanka the leading source of services and assistance to businesses countrywide for promotion of domestic and foreign trade so fromSriLanka.com will be a key part of fulfilling the objectives of the Chamber.
