30 - Singer (Sri Lanka)
Singer is very happy to be a recipient of the Business Today TOP 30. And we are privileged to open probably a long list of speakers. As you know Singer Sri Lanka is at the forefront of marketing, retail, manufacturing and finance. We are a company spread throughout Sri Lanka. We are there in city malls and we are there in the most remote villagers, having a small outlet. We sell agricultural pumps to the farmers, a bicycle to the fisherman and we sell smart phones to businessmen. We sell across the strata. Therefore, we are quite representative of a wide section of Sri Lanka. Many of my friends who are in politics ask me, ‘How is Singer performing?", when they want to judge whether the people of the country have the purchasing power'. Because we are a reflection of that.
We are very optimistic of the future of the country, about the present situation of the country and we believe that Sri Lanka has very good opportunities going forward. Geographically we are well placed. We now have good relationships with everyone and we believe that we are in a cross road, but are in a situation where we have a great future. This award is an inspiration to all of us, to do even better, to serve our consumers, to serve our community and all other stakeholders.
