Aug 10, 2020 (LBO) – The National Chamber of Exporters of Sri Lanka (NCE) congratulated the newly concluded election and the great victory achieved, in the formation of a new Government.
In a statement, NCE President Ramya Weerakoon said that the Chamber welcomes the new Government led by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa with a strong decree in developing and promoting exports of the country.
“This election demonstrates the confidence of Sri Lankan citizens. It is praiseworthy to mention the measures taken by the Government during COVID-19 pandemic and how the country’s situation has been handled by navigating sturdily throughout, to ensure health and safety of the general public.
