In-line with the outcomes of the National Exports Strategy of Sri Lanka, highlighting the importance of facilitating focused market access support for local companies to engage with international partners/clients in order to reach its national export revenue targets, ICTA in-view of accelerating its market access support through a focused Business Matchmaking initiative, is embarking on a B2B Matchmaking Mission to Australia.
