The Women’s Chamber of Industry and Commerce on Tuesday urged all Sri Lankans to stand united, to act responsibly and to support all authorities to restore law and order in the aftermath of the Easter Sunday atrocities.

“As women entrepreneurs and professionals, we condemn this senseless act and condole with everyone who was impacted. We feel the agony it has caused to the families of those who suffered, directly and indirectly, both local and foreign nationals. It is extremely disheartening to note that the fundamental rights of the nation, the right to safety, has been taken away from us ruthlessly.

The impact this will have, on the economy in the near future will be unmeasurable,” said Chamber Chairperson Chathuri Ranasinghe in a media statement.

She said that on behalf of the members of their organisation,the chamber was committed to supporting all initiatives that are taken nationally to support those who were impacted.  “Our sincere thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, all others affected and for our country Sri Lanka,” the statement said. – ENDS -
