Trinco Tamils urged to nurture entrepreneurism

[TamilNet, Friday, 18 October 2002, 19:01 GMT]
"The economy and the life style of Tamil population in the east port town will get a positive change if they adopted business oriented thinking," said Mr.K.Thurairajah, Chairman of the Trincomalee District Chamber of Commerce (TDCC) Thursday. "Even now Tamils in Trincomalee depend on job oriented economy. With the formation of the TDCC Tamils have been given a golden opportunity to enter business-oriented economy," said Mr.Thurairajah who was recently elected President of the newly formed TDCC when addressing the Trincomalee Rotary Club weekly meeting Thursday as guest speaker.

"The job-oriented economy of Tamils in Trincomalee has left large number of girls as spinsters as their parents prefer partners who are employed in government jobs. Parents are not prepared to hand over their daughters to young businessmen. Other communities do not depend on job-oriented economy. Especially Muslims prefer business-oriented economy and they flourish in the business environment," said Mr.Thurairajah.

Mr.Thurairajah attributed the sudden drop in the inflow of local tourists to Trincomalee to the recent violence. "Today large number of hotels and lodging houses opened after the ceasefire agreement in Trincomalee to cater local tourists has been closed down due to unsettled situation now prevailing in the east port town. Peace should be essential for the economy of the country," he said.

Attorney-at-Law Mr.Thirukumaranathan, President of the Trincomalee Rotary Club presided over the event held at Rotary House here. Rotarian Thirkumaranathan introduced the guest speaker who has vast experience in the business sphere to the audience.

Trincomalee Rotary Club Secretary Mr.R.Rajarammohan, who was elected the Secretary of the TDCC spoke about the functioning of the District Chamber of Commerce in Trincomalee.

Mr.A.V.Beeadle, Trincomalee Manager of the Hatton National Bank in his vote of thanks said Trincomalee is considered a "gold mine" in the sphere of economic development. The formation of a district chamber of commerce in Trincomalee has been given a golden opportunity to tap the natural resources available in plenty for the economic development of the people of the district and the country.
