The Sri Lanka Association of Printers (SLAP) is calling all printers in the country to observe a ‘Black Day’ today to protest against the unprecedented increase in the price of paper and other raw materials, which has resulted in the overall cost of production to expand significantly.
Initiated by All India Federation of Master Printers (AIFMP), who announced March 22 as a ‘Black Day,’ local industry representatives said Sri Lanka has responded to the call and will show solidarity.
The peaceful protest is observed with the objective of safeguarding the printing and packaging industry across from the “unethical and illogical” increase in the prices of raw material.
While AIFMP pointed out that their printing industry is on the verge of shutting down if corrective measures are not taken, Sri Lanka’s industry too has taken a massive hit due to cost escalation.
