The National Chamber of Commerce in a statement yesterday vehemently condemned the situation which has suddenly erupted in the country, sparked off by an incident which took place recently in the Central Province.

The following is its full statement.

It is very important and we reiterate that such unrest will only take the country’s economy to difficult situations. We should remember that the majority of the enterprises/businesses in Sri Lanka are the small and medium enterprises and these business are already in trouble due to the prevailing situation. Moreover, the impression that the rest of the world has on us could be damaged and will lead to loss of confidence of the international business community in Sri Lanka, and that could lead to so many economic difficulties that Sri Lanka could face in the time to come. 

The National Chamber calls upon all citizens in the country at this moment to be calm, act intelligently and not bow down to hearsay  at a situation of this nature and requests the state authorities to immediately take action  and bring back normalcy to our dear motherland.
