New footwear factory to generate foreign revenue

Sep '11
A new footwear factory has been inaugurated at Muthiyammagama near Tissamaharama town in southern part of the country by Chamal Rajapaksa, Speaker of Sri Lankan Parliament.

Speaking on the occasion, the Speaker said that the new factory will be able to generate better revenue from foreign trade, as opening of the Mattala airport and Hambantota port would facilitate swift and easy exportation of products.

He said that all the workers working in the factory are under an obligation to timely execute the orders, so that better returns could be generated and the shutting down of the facility can also be avoided.

The new factory has been inaugurated under the national programme to boost rural industries and promote their products in lines with the Mahinda Chintanaya.

More than 35 young women and men from the surrounding rural area were imparted training in footwear making and have now been engaged in the factory, the Speaker said.

He added that Hambantota district alone has a consumption capacity of around 10,000 pairs of slippers.

He further added that in spite of the area being densely populated, not many livelihood sources are available to the residents and hence many steps have been introduced to raise their standard of living.
