Prime Minister says Sri Lanka must face the world in a competitive manner

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has said that Sri Lanka must also face the world in a competitive manner. The Prime Minister expressed these views at the business Awards presentation held in Colombo.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe was the Chief Guest at the ceremony organized to felicitate Sri Lanka’s leading business entities in Colombo. The function was a joint organization by the Sri Lanka International Chamber of Commerce and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.

Ten renowned business entities had been chosen by a panel of judges, and among them, five were selected for the awarding of merit certificates. Evaluating the social services discharged in his political life, an award was also presented to Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe.

Expressing views at this function, the Prime Minister said that

“The world is changing and we too should change along with it. We should face this competition. It is important to move forward in the face of every challenge faced politically. Also this journey towards development should be traversed speedily.
We see a large expansion in the non-trading sector than the export sector. Development did not take place in the industrial sector as a result of not investing within the last ten years. The contribution of the Private Sector in this journey towards rapid development in the economy is vital.”
