JAAF commends President and PM for passing 19A

The Chairman and executive committee members of the Joint Apparel Association Forum (JAAF) on behalf of its constituent members salutes and congratulates President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and all the representatives of the people of the Legislature for showing and proving the existence of democratic ideals and traditions to the global community not only by words but also through deed by the adoption of the 19A to the Constitution which augurs well for all segments of society and the country in particular, a media release from JAAF said.

The consensus reached by Members of the Legislature representing different sections of the political divide, clearly demonstrates their commitment, upholding the trust placed in them by the people.

The 19th Amendment was a pledge made by the President and the Prime Minister to the people to usher in a new chapter in political freedom, assuring good governance and adherence to the rule of law by strengthening democratic institutions.

The passage of this historic piece of legislation cements the journey of Sri Lanka into an active and practising democracy and will have a lasting impact on the people.

"We, the members of the apparel industry have and will always be in the forefront for the revival and development of the economy. The industry strongly believes that this historic development will be a major stepping stone towards regaining the GSP+ facility from the European Commission which will benefit the entire export community," the release said.
