The parliament will have ample opportunity to review the MCC grant assistance agreement once it is signed, the US Embassy today said.

Issuing a statement, the Embassy said once the grant assistance agreement is signed, the Government of Sri Lanka will send it to parliament for approval.  

Consistent with the Millennium Challenge Corporation’s (MCC) worldwide policy in all partner countries, once the grant assistance agreement is signed, the Government of Sri Lanka will send it to parliament for approval,” it said.  

It said during that review period, the government will develop plans to implement the grant assistance agreement and design projects to improve transportation and land administration.  

Parliamentary review and approval are required by MCC to ensure the grant assistance agreement has the support of the government and the people,” it said.

The Embassy said the MCC pact will directly benefit over 11 million Sri Lankans and meaningfully stimulate economic growth.

    Gota has already signed a seven page document in 2007. Whatever they sign again should be with him and with the the concurrence of the parliament. If not the bad karma will get your prez impeached.

    You may have realized that this country has vast potential far exceeding that of Singapore, Dubai or Korea to throw away $ 480 millions to a party full of rogues, just like that. Wait a couple of weeks and deal with the man selected by the people of this country.
