Following is a statement issued by the Women’s Chamber of Industry and Commerce on the Easter Sunday attacks, issued by its Chairperson Chathuri Ranasinghe:

“On behalf of the Women’s Chamber of Industry and Commerce, I share our collective sentiments related to the incidents that we faced as a nation, during the last few days and the resultant situations. We as the women entrepreneurs and professionals, condemn this senseless act and condole with everyone who was impacted. We feel the agony it has caused to the families of those who suffered, directly and indirectly, both local and foreign nationals. 

“It is extremely disheartening to note that the fundamental rights of the nation, the right to safety, has been taken away from us ruthlessly. The impact this will have on the economy in the near future will be unmeasurable. “Further, on behalf of the members of our organisation, we commit to supporting all initiatives that are taken nationally to support those who were impacted. Our sincere thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, all others affected and for our country Sri Lanka. We call upon all Sri Lankan’s to stand united, to act responsibly and to support all authorities to restore law and order.”
