Eagle Logistics organising team
Supply chain management company Eagle Logistics Colombo organised a forum with the National Medicine Regulatory Authority (NMRA) for its customers who are importing medical devices in Sri Lanka at Mahweli Kendra Colombo recently.
This is the first time a logistics company in Sri Lanka has organised an event between the public and private sectors.
Four officials (pharmacists) participated from the NMRA and Customs Director Lalitha Weerasinghe and Imports and Exports Department Assistant Controller Vidyalanka were also at the head table.
The NMRA officials presented the total process of import licence for all medical devices including the government act. There were many questions from the audience related to the documents, etc.
Weerasinghe explained the areas the importers should be aware of before placing a foreign order and also how to do the decelerations.
It was a three-hour forum with over 150 participants representing 80 companies in Sri Lanka. The customers too expressed their satisfaction as they were waiting for an opportunity to meet the NMRA officially.
Addressing the gathering Eagle Logistics Managing Director Asanga Weerackody said that from the inception the company always looked at the possibilities of helping the import industry in Sri Lanka and this is another way to do so.
This is another event organised by the CSR Unit of Eagle Logistics.
