From this year, the Sri
Lankan authorities will strictly enforce
laws relating to air, land and sea to protect the island's environment. According
to the director general of the Central
Environment Authority (CEA), V U Ratnayake, the health of the people should
take precedence. The government has made it mandatory
for industries to set up pollution-free "environment
infrastructure in accordance with CEA guidelines".
