COLOMBO (News 1st); Sri Lankan Book Publishers say that the book production process for school exercise books has dropped by 70%, mainly due to banks not opening Letters of Credit to import paper.

Book Publishers speaking to News 1st said that they are finding it difficult to source paper to keep up with the demand.

Local publishers said due to the present economic situation their production process which operated all week, is limited to two to three days.

They are requesting the authorities to immediately intervene and solve the issue, and warned that if this situation continues there will be a serious shortage of exercise books when schools reopen for the second term.
