Chief Minister of the North Western Province (NWP) S.B. Nawinne, the German Ambassador in Sri Lanka Juergen Elias and the Resident Representative of Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) of Germany Dr. (Mrs.) Marlies Salazar opened the Konrad Adenauer Auditorium at the Industrial Services Bureau at Kurunegala.
Before the commencement of the meeting a presentation of a documentary on Wayamba ranging from industrial and rural development to agriculture took place.
This gave an insight as to the vision of the ISB: “To be the most efficient, effective and recognised service organisation in Sri Lanka in the field of industrial development and services”.
Gamini Senanayake, Director of the Industrial Services Bureau said that this was a long-felt need of the Industrial Services Bureau and the business community in and around Kurunegala and it is fully equipped with all modern conference facilities and it is even open to outsiders depending on its availability. He said that it could accommodate around 100 participants at a time.
Juergen Elias commended the progress made by the ISB and its contribution towards the industrial and economic development of Wayamba. He said the economic and industrial philosophies of the leaders of Germany have made it possible to help various nations with programmes towards social, industrial and economic development.
He congratulated the director and the staff for the productive work done since the inception of the ISB and assured his assistance.
The Resident representative of KAS Dr. (Mrs.) Marlies Salazar of Germany said the Auditorium of the ISB is the only one of its kind in Asia named after Konrad Adenauer.
She commended the achievements registered by the ISB towards the industrial and economic development of Wayamba. She was glad to note that the Wayamba small, medium and large-scale industrialists have benefited from these services of the ISB and over a decade, expanded its service covering the entire island and reach out beyond Sri Lanka. She will continue to render assistance in the future too, she said.
