900 containers of essential goods, stuck at port

Over 900 containers with essential goods have been stuck at the port of Colombo for around a month due to the dollar shortage.
Among these are 350 containers with around 10,000 MT of sugar which are not released from the Customs due to the dollar shortage, sources say.
A shortage of essential goods occurred several weeks back after a large number of containers remained un-released from the port due to the same reason.
