The Sri Lanka Forum of University Economists (SLFUE) is a network of all Departments and Units of Economics within the Sri Lankan university system which was initiated in 2012 with the objective of promoting closer co-operation, dialogue, collaborative research and mutual enhancement among the academics in the field of Economics. As the major annual event, SLFUE organizes the International Conference of Sri Lanka Forum of University Economics enabling academics and researchers in the field of Economics to discuss and deliberate their findings, publish their research work and disseminate the knowledge that will emerge to the wider public and policy makers.
