CCC seeks Japanese assistance for marine resources

Tsideles.jpg (61285 bytes)he Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC) seeks Japanese assistance to exploit the country’s marine resources. In a letter to the Japanese Commerce and Industry Association president Kenji Kojima, CC Chairman Chandra Jayaratne says:-

"I would appreciate if your association could seek potential Japanese business conglomerates with interests in exploiting the identified investment opportunities including — deep see fishing and extracting aquatic plants and minerals, processing of fish and allied marine products, operating, selling/leasing fishing vessels and sea crafts and provision of technology and advisory services to local business entities proposing to exploit marine opportunities."

He further says that it was a privilege to have had the opportunity to associate with you, as a co-panellist at the seminar commemorating fifty years of bilateral relations between Sri Lanka and Japan, held at the BMICH recently.

"I was inspired by our frank analysis of the prevailing external environment in Sri Lanka and the economic and investment climate in Japan" he says. Whilst agreeing with you on the prevailing situation in Sri Lanka, we at the CCC remain hopeful that in the short to medium term — Peace will prevail throughout the country, political and social stability will emerge, internal security will be conducive to business, infrastructure will facilitate the private sector achieving competitiveness in a global environment, in selected areas of business.

Governance framework will improve substantially, economic Reforms and de-regulation with specific reference to education and labour will empower the private sector to mobilise and leverage resources and operate with economy, effectiveness and efficiency. I annex a copy of a booklet published by the CCC titled "A Review of Marine Resources in Sri Lanka – Potential for Investment" says Jayaratne.
