Emerging need of protection for digital databases

Dec. 16, 2014 (LBT) - A study on digital database protection is particularly relevant at this time because of the current economic climate in Sri Lanka. After 30 years of war, Sri Lanka has been an important economy in the South Asian Region and because of this there is now, more than ever, a compelling need for further investment, innovation and the transfer of technology and knowledge. The knowledge together with technology governs the world’s leading economies. The economies of this world are dominated by creations, manipulation and use of data or information. As a trend it is now transferring to developing countries around the world thanks to the rapid development of Information Technology.

Profits, shareholder expectations no longer the only objectives, says Suresh Shah

Nov. 27, 2014 (LBT) - In today’s corporate environment, making profits and meeting shareholder expectations are no longer the only objectives. Today, the process of wealth creation is measured, not just in terms of return on investment, but also in terms of a corporate’s impact on society and the environment. Indeed the triple bottom line – profits, planet and people – is here to stay, said Suresh Shah, Chairman of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday. Delivering his speech at the Best Corporate Citizen Sustainability Awards 2014 ceremony in Colombo, where Dr Subir Gokarn, an Economist and a Former Deputy Governor of the Reserve Bank of India was the keynote speaker and Hilmy Cader, CEO of the MTI Consulting attended as the guest of honour, Mr. Shah said that in 2004, the Ceylon Chamber initiated the Best Corporate Citizen award to encourage and recognize those corporates that adopted the triple bottom line approach to wealth creation. During the formative years, the award was skewed towards a corporate responsibility platform. However, as the name suggests, the award now goes beyond CSR to encompass sustainability, which is the triple bottom line. Following are excerpts of his speech: This evening marks the 11th consecutive year in ... Read more
