Investors say frequent power failures at the Biyagama Export Processing Zones (EPZs) are causing immense problems. They accuse Sri Lanka’s premier investment agency, BOI of turning a blind eye to the deteriorating situation there.
Sources told The Island that the Biyagama Export Manufacturers Association had taken up the issue with the authorities in an effort to pressure the BOI to rectify the shortcomings. One of their basic needs is a quality power supply besides improvements to the road network, particularly the approach roads to Zone ‘A’ and Zone ‘B’.
