Sri Lanka's business sector organizes seminar on SSCP

[TamilNet, Saturday, 27 August 2005, 14:58 GMT]
The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC) has organized a one-day seminar to raise concerns over the Sethusamudram Canal Project (SSCP) creating much discussion and debate among environmental groups, buisness community, government officials and the general public. Environmental groups held two demonstrations in Colombo last week against the implementation of the SSCP arguing that it would cause serious damage to the fishing industry in the northern region and environmental damage to the island.

The seminar which is to be held on August 29 afternoon at the ground floor of the Chamber is intended to enlighten the business community on the possible implications of the project on business and also to facilitate business sector to adopt appropriate strategies to face such implications effectively, CCC sources said.

Members of the Government of Sri Lanka delegation that went to India recently and held discussion with their counterparts on the controversial SSCP and experts who have studied the project have been invited to address the seminar, CCC sources said.
