More protests will affect tourism, businesses - Chamber

More protests in the country like the one ‘Aragalaya’ is planning from August 9 will adversely affect businesses, tourism and the country’s economy, Colombo Business Association Chief Secretary Chaminda Vidanagamage said.

Speaking to the media in Colombo yesterday, he said struggles should be conducted to prevent the corruption and waste of public property in the public sector, stabilise the rupee and uplift the economy. Stating that the tourism sector was severely affected due to the people’s struggles, he said paving the way for increasing the foreign reserves in the country will be helpful to restore the economy.

Europe will experience the winter in the coming months and the Europeans are looking for the Asian Countries to visit during this period. “If Sri Lanka could begin the tourism season in November attracting those tourists, the economy could be revived within a few months,” Vidanagamage said.
