The Sri Lanka Preparedness Partnership (SLPP) conducted two training programs on business continuity management (BCM) in Gampaha and Puttalam districts on 17 and 21 December 2021. It witnessed the participation of 59 micro, small, and medium entrepreneurs. The programs were organized by The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with Gampaha District Chamber of Commerce, Industry & Agriculture, and Puttalam District Chamber of Commerce, Industry & Agriculture.

The BCM training is a part of SLPP’s initiative to build the capacity of micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs). Enhancing MSME resilience is part of larger national endeavors as these enterprises make up more than 80% of all businesses in Sri Lanka. With this consideration, businesses that adopt BCM practices are better equipped to cope with the impacts of natural disasters and human-induced disasters as well as prepare them for effective response and recovery.
