Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera told reporters that while the Government will promote electric three-wheelers in the country it will not look to stop the import of three-wheelers.
The Minister said that regulations will be introduced to ensure three-wheelers which operate on the streets meet certain basic requirements.
“I see three-wheelers as an industry,” the Minister said.
He also said that three-wheelers catch the eyes of tourists and so, as proposed in the budget for 2018, the Tourist Board will promote Tourist Board approved three-wheelers. (Colombo Gazette)
