Wimal Weerawansa, Minister of Industry says that the main crisis facing the country’s industry is the difficulty in obtaining imported raw materials rather than a two-hour power cut.
“There is a crisis in issuing letters of credit and opening the LCs. As such, many industrialists are facing great difficulties. During the discussion I made a proposal in the Cabinet, There are not many countries that import this raw material, there are several, we can negotiate with those one or two countries and get a special credit line for the raw material is the best solution at the moment. The issue of obtaining these imported raw materials is the main challenge that has arisen today regarding the survival of the industry rather than the two-hour power cut. ”
Minister Wimal Weerawansa stated this while expressing his views to the media yesterday (21).
