Senior office-bearers of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC) who called on new Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena to offer their felicitation, categorically stated that all Members of Parliament and political parties must join an all-party government. If they are unable to do so due to political reasons they should agree on a national plan to review the economy in the interest of the country and the people, they said.

Prime Minister Gunawardena explained the endeavours of the government to bring economic activities to normalcy and to deal with the challenge of shortages of essential items. He assured the delegation of the fullest support of the government in the efforts to remove the problems faced by the trade and industry sectors due to current shortages and social instability.

The CCC delegation pointed out that it is essential to seek support from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to review the economy and ensure stability to attract foreign investment.

The delegation included CCC President Vish Govindaswami, Vice President Duminda Hulangamuwa and Senior Vice President Krishen Balendra. Secretary to the Prime Minister Anura Dissanayake and Media Advisor Sugeeswara Senadhira were also present during the discussion.
