Post-Covid Recovery Depends On Effective Execution Of Public-Private Vision: CCC
As Sri Lanka looks for avenues to move towards a positive growth trajectory, the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC) stressed that an accelerated post-COVID-19 recovery will be predicated on the effective execution of a public-private shared vision for economic revival and social sustenance.

  • Says protection of life and livelihoods should be an immediate priority
  • Stresses need for ‘U shaped’ economic recovery at the national average level and ‘V-shaped’ recovery in targeted internal sectors
  • Notes post Covid-19 era requires an increased focus on macroeconomic factors and superior access of local biz to global markets
  • CCC chief says he looks forward to a recommitment of govt. focus towards recalibration of public sector expenditure, empowerment and upskilling of civil service, SoE reform, etc

According to the re-elected CCC Chairman Dr.Hans Wijayasuriya, the revival and social sustenance will be based on a set of founding principles.

Pointing out three such principles, he shared that the first is the primacy for protection of life and livelihoods where Sri Lanka’s human development and socio-economic baseline indicators are protected as an immediate priority.
