Tambuttegama Economic Center faces closure?

The Tambuttegama Dedicated Economic Center is forced to be closed down due to difficulties in obtaining transportation permits, reports say.

The the prevailing curfew conditions, transport permits are issued after presenting the recommendation of the Divisional Secretary. 

The DS recommendation comes only after obtaining the approval of the regional Public Health Inspector and the Grama Niladari.

Under the prevailing circumstances, it has been quite difficult for businessmen to meet these three officials. Therefore, transportation of vegetables has been held up completely, says Sunil Seneviratne, the President of the Traders' Union at the Thambuttegama Economic Center.
