Batticaloa District Minister of Parliament, Shanakiyan Rasamanickam raised concerns over Chinese firms operating in the country disregarding the official languages of the country when setting up name boards.
In response to this, the Chinese Embassy in Sri Lanka tweeted that it had requested the building to abide by the country’s Trilingual Law.
We noticed an interim sign in a JV building site not abiding by trilingual rules. Request raised.
We respect all 3 official languages in 🇱🇰, and urge 🇨🇳companies to follow.
