Private Sector groups call on President 700 01
Sri Lanka’s private sector groups called on President Maithripala Sirisena recently and expressed their concerns over the serious socio-economic impact of the current political crisis. They also urged him to take urgent measures to resolve the crisis. The meeting between the President and them lasted for nearly 45-minutes.

The private group included heads of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC), Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FCCISL), National Chamber of Commerce (NCC), Ceylon National Chamber of Industry (CNCI), National Chamber of Exporters (NCE), International Chamber of Commerce (ICCSL), Sri Lanka Apparel (JAAF), Chamber of Young Lankan Entrepreneurs (COYLE) and the Women’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry (WCCI).
In a statement issued, they observed:

“It is observed that the entire administration of this country has come to a standstill and the public officers are paralyzed, being unable to discharge their functions. The ultimate victims are the people of our country.

We recently witnessed the most unacceptable and abusive behaviour displayed in the Chamber of the Sri Lanka Parliament. The conduct of some of the elected representatives was both shameful and an embarrassment to our country.

We call upon all those responsible to accord the highest priority to national interest and refrain from pursuing any path that will result in an economic downfall which will have an adverse impact on the country and the people. We call for urgent and sensible action.”
