Rajapakse inaugurates CHOGM’13, tweets on Airtel


The Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa on Tuesday, inaugurated the Business Forum of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) at the Hotel Cinnamon Grand  and visited the Bharti Airtel experience booth from where he sent out tweets about the opening of the Commonwealth Business Forum to the world through the Bharti Airtel network.

ITRealms reports that as principal sponsor of the Commonwealth Business Forum 2013, Bharti Airtel through Suren Goonewardene, Chief Executive Officer/Managing Director of Bharti Airtel Lanka reassured the company’s support to CHOGM.

“Airtel Lanka’s affiliation with the prestigious CHOGM 2013 summit opens new doors for the telecommunication industry and the country as a whole. The Airtel Lanka sponsorship of the CHOGM Business Forum is a historic event as is Sri Lanka hosting this global summit” he said.

Sri Lanka, he also observed, is a land emerging out of the shadows of the past, and the fact that Bharti Airtel is hosting the prestigious CHOGM summit opens new doors for the economy and a country as a whole.

“It gives us the chance to howcase to the world that we are a nation ready to go forth in to the world and that we possess the knowledge, resources and expertise required to take a more active role in implementing development initiatives. While this forum is the ideal occasion for Sri Lanka to send out a clear message that would encourage international investors, it will also provide a common 360 degree platform for sharing strategies and discussing opportunities for wealth creation and social development which would lead to making a better impact on the global economy.” Goonewardene said.

ITRealms recalls Bharti Airtel is a global telecommunications organization that has been a trend setter by introducing many innovative ideas and products to the local telecom market. Manoj Kohli CEO and Managing Director Bharti Airtel will also be a guest speaker at the forum, which will bring together many local and global business leaders. He will be speaking at sessions on the 13th of November at the Partnership Roundtables – on ‘Facilitating Asian investment into Africa forum’ and on the 14th Nov at the ‘Africa & Asia: Reshaping Partnerships for Sustainable Growth forum.’

Equally, ITRealms reports that earlier this month Bharti Airtel launched an exclusive, limited offer CHOGM 249 package which offered special International Direct Dial (IDD) and DATA rates to users connecting with the 53 member countries of the Commonwealth Association.
