ZONTA RECOGNISES TOP PUBLIC SECTOR OFFICIAL FOR MANAGEMENT AWARD

 When public sector officials are hardly recognized for their contribution to the national development particularly management of public organizations and meeting set goals, Zonta has recognized to award the Woman of Achievement on Management to Mrs. Indira Malwatte, Chirperson & Chief Executive of the  Sri Lanka Export Development Board (EDB) for her outstanding contribution in reorganizing the Export Development Board to meet the new challenges and adopting a model of private-public sector partnership in developing and promoting exports and her 40 years of commitment in the export sector.

The Zonta awards on recognizing “Woman of Achievement” reinforces their commitment to acknowledging Women’s contribution to the national economy.  Zonta Club of Colombo has actively recognized and celebrated women who have achieved outstanding success in Sri Lanka in their respective fields of work. Incidentally Indira Malwatte is the first woman Chairperson & Chief Executive of the 38 history of the EDB which is indicative of the importance the Government plays on gender equality.
