LNP – CCC applauds govt. efforts to expedite vaccination drive

The government’s efforts in expediting the vaccination drive across the country was well received by the local business community as it is the only viable path to facilitate the reopening of the country, Sri Lanka’s largest oldest business chamber.

The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC), while commending President Gotabaya Rajapaksa for taking the necessary efforts to ensure citizens across the island are inoculated at the earliest, it expressed that vaccinating a significant proportion of the population is the only sustainable solution to overcome the challenges posed by the pandemic.

In a statement to the media yesterday, the association said it hopes the acceleration of the vaccination drive will pave the way to open the country gradually facilitating both tourism and business travel, a necessity to promote trade and investment.

“This will eventually help to restore economic activity to pre-pandemic levels in the near future enabling all segments of the population to rebuild their livelihoods,” the Chamber said.
