FTZ operations back to normal shortly – BOI


Operations at all Free Trade Zones and export companies under the BOI continue and are returning to normalcy, with employees reporting for duty despite certain setbacks that were faced in the country, BOI said in a statement.

The BOI has been communicating with law enforcement agencies to facilitate and ensure smooth transportation of all workers to factories without any difficulty. “At the same time, we are also working hand in hand with Sri Lanka Customs and the Sri Lanka Ports Authority with respect to smooth import and export processes for the BOI enterprises. In the face of the current circumstances, it is of utmost importance that we keep our valued foreign exchange earnings flowing into the country by providing required assistance to our enterprises by all relevant agencies.”

“Therefore, the BOI wishes to thank all relevant stakeholders for the assistance provided thus far and look forward to continued cooperation of all concerned parties to ensure the smooth functioning of our enterprises,” the statement concluded.
