BOC becomes number one Sri Lankan brand

The ‘BOC’ was selected as the number one Sri Lankan brand by the very first Interbrand Best Sri Lankan Brands convention conducted at The Hilton Colombo recently.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe as the chief guest graced the occasion pioneered by Interbrand, the world’s largest and most influential global brand consulting agency, in partnership with the Daily FT newspaper.

Bank of Ceylon scored its third “Trillion” at the end of the year 2016,surpassing the Rs. One trillion mark in advances, another unique milestone in its 77 year journey.

The BOC becomes the first and up to now the only bank to pass this milestone in Sri Lanka .

Interbrand is a New York-based with 21 offices in 17 countries. It is highly recognized for its globally influential ‘Breakthrough Brands’ and ‘Best Global Brands’ reports and Webby Award-winning ‘brand channel’.

Sri Lanka being in the Interbrand catalogue of countries is important as a chance for local companies to be on the global stage. The prime minister noted that it is impressive to see state banks performing well among Sri Lankan brands.
