Sri Lanka exporters want constraints removed
ECONOMYNEXT – The Exporters’ Association of Sri Lanka (EASL) has urged the new government to remove constraints to export growth that compel its members to set up base in other countries.
The EASL said in a statement it looks forward to government support to reach the 50 billion US dollar export target set recently by the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce of which it is a member.
“It is vital to address the constraints that stifle development and growth within the country which compels Sri Lankan companies to seek to set up bases in other hubs in the region, in order to achieve their growth potential.”
The EASL said the government should get the support of exporters in policy making.
It also called for “dialogue and transparency in decision making processes by export related organizations within the government.” (Colombo/August 19 2015)
