Sri Lanka has been recognised as world's second largest pool of UK qualified accounting professionals, second only to the UK and an excellent niche for outsourcing for Finance and Accounting.
In addition to this the Sri Lankan BPO industry has the fastest-growing recruitment sector for jobs in Sri Lanka, and has a big demand from international customers.
This has been stated by the Chairman of SLASSCOM (Sri Lanka Association of Software and Services Companies) Sujiva Dewaraja addressing a function held in Colombo recently. He has said that Sri Lanka produces highly-trained BPO workers who are very versatile in their field, International clients including those from European countries are keen to work with Sri Lanka's BPO sector because Sri Lankan BPO employees are capable of handling high-profile jobs.
He has pointed out that there is a BPO facility at Seenigama who help in the auctioning of well known artifacts involved with world-renowned auction houses such as Christie's and Sotheby's, and the Seenigama BPO is a good example of how Information and Communication technology (ICT) can improve the lives of people living in the rural areas. He has said that providing employment and career opportunities to the youth, BPO centres can bring in plenty of revenue and profits that can rake in an annual income of over Rs. 2 million. (niz).
