Microsoft joins hands with Sri Lanka in its journey to becoming unstoppable with AI

In a bid to strengthen commitment and partnership towards the South Asia region, Puneet Chandok, the President of Microsoft India and South Asia, made his inaugural visit to Sri Lanka in March 2024, since taking office in September 2023.

Building on the two-decade journey of empowering the people of Sri Lanka through Cloud and AI technologies, Puneet engaged in discussions with President Ranil Wickremesinghe and Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena during his two-day visit.

The discussions explored the transformative potential of AI in uplifting societies and communities, while discussing how innovative technological solutions can propel Sri Lanka towards becoming a digital nation.

Fostering global competitiveness and investing into the digital future of the country, Microsoft and the Ministry of Education, Sri Lanka, joined forces with a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to integrate AI to the national school curriculum starting grade 8, thereby equipping students with essential skills for the future. This marks a significant milestone for the education landscape of Sri Lanka.
