The seventh Exporters’ Forum of the Sri Lanka Export Development Board was held in Colombo on Friday. The event which was organised by the Ministry of Development strategies and international trade, saw the participation of many stakeholders of the export sector and the State Minister of International Trade, Sujeewa Senasinghe

State Minister of Development Strategies and International Trade, Sujeewa Senasinghe speaking on the occasion said:

The budget has just come out, the people are also a bit confused. We are also confused, but I think its a good direction we have taken this budget, an export-oriented budget.

He added:

The people might not understand this, the general public will always want concessions but we can’t build this country on concessions. We must create the environment for the export industry. We must encourage them and only if we encourage the export sector, which is about 11 billion now, and our aim is to make it about 35 billion in five years (will be realised).
