More than 144 businessmen attached to the Dambulla Dedicated Economic Centre request the responsible authorities to take action to expedite the construction work on the cold storage complex at Dambulla of which the work is going on at a very slow pace.

They say that the Economic Centre was set up in the year 1991 and that they have been requesting the authorities concerned since then to construct a cold storage complex as 40 per cent of the vegetables and fruits go waste every year due to non- availability of a cold stores.

This cold storage complex is being constructed in a land next to the Economic Centre, which is four acres in extent.

‘When this cold storage complex is completed it will be beneficial not
