ECONOMYNEXT- Sri Lanka’s exporters are looking to export excess goods produced and not consumed in the post-Easter Sunday economy, a trade association said.
The Exporters’ Association of Sri Lanka (EASL) in a statement said that it is encouraging exports in the industrial sector and in sectors such as fruits, vegetables and seafood, where there is a surplus without tourists to consume them.
"Acknowledging the colossal impact the attacks have had on human life, livelihoods, and the economy, the EASL is committed to do their part to help Sri Lanka recover," it said.
EASL said that it will lobby the government to implement a tax incentive, such as one based on incremental sales over the previous year, in order to boost exports. (Colombo/May27/2019)
