Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa says that challenges need to be managed through fresh strategies to strengthen the country’s economy in the next few years.

The Prime Minister was addressing the Sri Lanka Economic Forum organized by the Sri Lanka Chamber of Commerce via video technology.

The challenges facing our government in 2020 are enormous. Those challenges are not only due to Covid.

We all know that the significant downturn in our economy from 2015 to 2019 also contributed to this. But we will not hesitate to face those challenges. I will not hesitate before a challenge. No complaining. We did not waste time blaming the opposition. Instead, we fulfilled our responsibility by playing the role that the people expected of us. Accordingly, we presented the first budget of the new government. Through this we put forward the necessary proposals to achieve 5.5% growth in the economy by 2021, to maintain the tax policy unchanged and to give a new life to the economy.

We look forward to implementing these with all Government Ministers, MPs and officials in the field of administration.

The next few years will be crucial for our country. It is a time to strengthen the economic progress of our country. If we are to succeed in the coming period, we must all work together to manage these challenges. For that, we need to implement fresh strategies.”
