In a landmark agreement that augurs well for the local industry, the Sri Lankan paint giant Lankem Robbialac joined hands with the premier body safeguarding the Sri Lankan construction standards – Sri Lanka Institute of Architects – as its Principal Partner for 2017.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed in Colombo last week at the Taj Samudra Hotel with the SLIA represented by its Senior Vice President Archt. D.H Wijewardena and Director of Lankem Ceylon PLC Ruwan T. Weerasinghe.

This is the first time Lankem has entered into such a strategic partnership with the Sri Lanka Institute of Architects, the foremost entity for architecture in Sri Lanka, with a sponsorship of this nature.
