The European Union lifted its ban on Sri Lankan fish exports on Thursday (16th June).
At this occasion Ambassador Daly officially announced the lifting of the ban on Sri Lankan fish exports to the European Union.
Thereafter the first consignment of fish was handed over to the exporters by Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Ministry Secretary Mangalika Adhikari and the EU Ambassador.
According to the Secretary, Sri Lanka’s earnings from fish exports dwindled from Euro 73 million to 9 million as a result of the ban.
She appealed to the fishing community and the exporters not to allow this opportunity to be lost again.
