[30 September, 2013]
SLAEAJ will help to trade development, between Sri Lanka and Japan with the cooperation of our members to operate result oriented programs to address in automobile industry, spare part and other businesses.
Our ultimate goal is to emphasis in developing trade link, through launching appropriate program to establish mutual relationship with vehicle dealers and other parties and cooperating to manage and coordinate issues with Sri Lanka Government as well as local and international organizations.
Given the importance of our Association in this sector, the SLAEAJ handed over a proposal on importing used vehicles to Minister of Economic Development of Government of Sri Lanka, Hon. Basil Rajapaksa to extend the year limits of used vehicles as follows;
Cars and Jeeps (made in Japan or any other country) to 3 years.
Commercial Vehicles (Trucks and Buses) (made in Japan or any other country) to 5 years.
Furthermore, SLAEAJ hopes implementing these limits, customers in Sri Lanka will be able to purchase high quality vehicles for reasonably cheaper price from the world market. In this case, importing a Japan made used vehicles car would be more appropriate since those are originally made for the use for the domestic market satisfying with Japanese high standards for highest quality
