Forex crisis: Fuel imports restricted in the next year


Minister of Power and Energy Kanchana Wijesekara says fuel imports will be restricted in the next 12 months due to the forex crisis.

Taking to Twitter, he revealed that the National Fuel Pass QR code system was introduced since the daily fuel demand cannot be fulfilled.

The Minister further said that the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) has never distributed fuel daily to every fuel station in the country as it is not possible even with unlimited stocks of fuel.
