Global support on chemical handling and management
"SMEs, the backbone of our economy is to receive global support on
chemical handling and management. Having assisted to build Sri Lanka's
national capacity in chemical handling, we are looking to build capacity
in safety, security and handling of industrial chemicals by Sri Lanka's
SME sector next" said Director-General of the Organisation for the
Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW)Ahmet Üzümcü.
He was speaking at a discussion on the 'Importance of Hazardous
Material Management at Worksites' at the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce
"For OPCW, Sri Lanka is an important state party. Sri Lanka has now a
better chance of attracting industrial investments from foreign
investors for large scale industrial chemical ventures thanks to the
chemical regulatory and monitoring regime now in place, " he said.
