Early delivery for 2002 Yellow Pages
CD, web access for wider reach

The 2002 edition of Yellow Pages, the most comprehensive buyer and seller information resource in Sri Lanka, will reach all telephone subscribers in January, earlier than other years, its publisher Directories Lanka (Pvt) Ltd., (DLPL) has announced.

In its second year as a stand-alone publication and the first since distribution was made independent of the White Pages, the 2002 Yellow Pages is expected to reach a much wider target group this year, the company said.

Delivery of the directory, which is free to all telephone subscribers, began in the third week of December, in keeping with DLPL’s promise of "timely distribution and widest reach" to its customer base in Greater Colombo, a spokesman for DLPL said.

He said a significant feature of the 2002 Yellow Pages was a tie-up between the company and the Sri Lanka Tourist Board to promote local tourism to boost the national economy. A copy of the new directory was presented to the Minister of Tourism Mr. Gamini Lokuge recently.

The 2002 Yellow Pages is also available on CD and via the worldwide web. The web site: provides access to both the Greater Colombo and the provincial directories and contains a fast-find index that enables search of the Yellow Pages by company name, classification, telephone numbers, key words or area search.

Directories Lanka (Pvt) Ltd., has published the Yellow Pages since 1983. DLPL was the first ever winner of the National Quality Award in 1995. The spokesman said the company plans to continue its corporate quality drive in providing much-needed information for buying and selling to the Sri Lankan community.
