Cabinet Spokesperson Dr. Bandula Gunawardena says the government does not have a special program to rebuild the tourism and export industries that have been damaged by the coronavirus. The future decisions will have to be made according to the circumstances, he said.
"This is not a usual situation. The world does not have a solution to that. For example, during World War II, the vast majority of our country lost food. Rather, in recent history there was a great terror of 1989. Factories and workplaces closed during the terror period.
During the war, those who were guarding the border villages and outside the factories joined the pile of jobsless. Therefore, some problems cannot be solved locally, ”he said.
Mr. Bandula Gunawardena was responding to a question raised by a journalist at the Cabinet Declaration held today (09).
