The government has introduced an economic agenda with the aim of making Sri Lanka a high income country by 2030 or 2032. We have to achieve this target, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said.
“We will set up a set of National Policies and then the policies will remain even when regimes change. The National Unity Government was established with this aim. The people will decide who should stay and who should go, “the Prime Minister said.
Addressing over 1,000 public management assistants recruited to the public service at Temple Trees yesterday, the Prime Minister said once the country is developed, all the benefits will go to the people and children.
“The public service and all other sectors will be used to make Sri Lanka a high income country by 2032. Now Sri Lanka is a middle income country,” the Premier said.
According to the Prime Minister, the new recruits joined the public service during a crucial time because the world is undergoing a major change. There are many technological and economic changes taking place in Asia and the Indian ocean promoting large scale development in the region,”he said.
“Sri Lanka has already joined this changing process and the world has undergone tremendous progress by the time the newly recruits retire in another 30 or 40 years. Some may start their own private enterprises before that,” Prime Minister Wickremesinghe said.
