The garment industry is destroyed by the new import ban! Millions of jobs will be lost!
Businesspeople say they are in a lot of trouble as a result of the ban on the import of goods from many other sectors, including the garment industry. Tania Abeysundara, president of the Sri Lanka United Businessmen’s Association, stated that the Ministry of Finance announced on the 23rd that 305 items could not be imported for the time being.
“The garment industry employs millions, both directly and indirectly.” Many jobs are lost as a result of this work. There is, in fact, a monetary issue. We’ve all written to the government with solutions to the dollar problem. Dollars can be purchased on the open market. We have repeatedly asked the government to create a system to channel these funds into the banking sector. We requested that they open accounts in these dollars and allow them to import. Having said that, you must pay attention to it. It is the responsibility of the government to protect businesses. Then this country will waste what it has by making decisions at its leisure.
We tell them that you are responsible for the 21 million people who represent the country, not the 225 members of parliament. Please keep in mind that the tools are now limited. “Should a similar person who wants to buy 100 needles import them?” she asks.
