The opposition claims there is no collective discussion between officials within the government and the political authority.
Speaking during a media briefing Parliamentarian Mujibur Rahuman said the government failed to take collective action to resolve the prevailing crisis in the country.
He added the Minister of Finance fails to attend talks when the Governor of the Central Bank is present while the Central Bank Governor fails to attend talks with the Finance Minister.
MP Rahuman reiterated leaders of main decision making institutions including political leaders and state officials failed to hold discussions together to overcome the prevailing crisis.
He added as a result importers are also burdened.
MP Rahuman said 2,500 containers are held at the port as importers don’t have dollars to release goods.
He noted foreign exporters will not send goods to Sri Lanka if importers are unable to pay for the goods and therefore they will be unable to import goods in future.
He said the financial situation will deteriorate further if Sri Lanka is blacklisted by foreign exporters.
The MP claimed Indian exporters have arrived in Sri Lanka to obtain payments for their goods from importers, which is not a favourable situation.
He further said several factories in the country need imported raw material to operate.
