Pensions for emigrant workers

Minister of Foreign Employment Thalatha Atukorale said that a pension scheme will be implemented in the course of this year for Lankan emigrant workers.

The minister made this comment at a function to celebrate the New Year at the Foreign Employment Bureau and Ministry of Foreign Employment premises.

She said that this is in line with a pledge given in the development policies of President Maithripala Sirisena and was hence a matter of satisfaction that this pledge can be implemented this year.

The minister said that the ministry had already implemented the Workers’ Security Programme while development officers who were deployed to Divisional Secretariat offices through that programme will be assigned more responsibilities to implement more pledges this year.
