    A Statement from the Government Regarding the Import of Vehicles

    Cabinet Spokesman Minister Bandula Gunawardena said today that under the current foreign exchange crisis, import restrictions should be eased in a very planned and meticulous manner.

    Joining today’s cabinet press conference, Minister Gunawardena said that he believes that it will not be possible to import motor vehicles etc. for some time.
