Rear Admiral (Retd) Ananda Peiris was today (28) appointed as the new Chairman of Sri Lanka’s largest state-owned retail network “Lanka Sathosa” while Venura Gunawardena was appointed as Chairman of the Cooperative Wholesale Establishment (CWE).

Meanwhile, former chairman of Lanka Sathosa and CWE Nushad Perera has been appointed as Chairman of the Sri Lanka Standards Institution (SLSI).

The Ministry of Trade had announced the appointments today.

Last week, Nushad Perera had announced that he stepped down as chairman of the CWE, refuting claims that he was removed.

However, he faced allegations of causing losses to the government which had run up to billions of rupees, after being involved in a sugar racket.
