There has been a severe impact on many fields including the field of tourism subsequent to the Easter Sunday suicide bomb attacks.

44 foreign nationals died in the blasts and as a result arrival of tourists to this country is at a minimum now.

President of the Sri Lanka Tourist Bus Owners’ Association Neil Jayatissa told the Hiru News Division that due to the halt in the flow of tourists into the country, more than 550 tourist buses have stopped running.

He said further that as a result, more than 1500 persons have been deprived of employment.

Even wholesale trading has been affected after the bombings in the country.

President of the Essential Goods Importers Association, G. Rajendran said that wholesale trading has dropped by about 70%.
