A Sri Lankan delegation embarked on a four-day study tour to Indonesia to draw insights from its journey in establishing a holistic social security framework, placing specific emphasis on their acclaimed unemployment insurance mechanism.

Headed by Labour and Foreign Employment Ministry Secretary R.P.A.Wimalaweera,this immersive experience granted the delegation the privilege to understand the nuances of Indonesia’s social welfare blueprint. Through in-depth dialogues, collaborative knowledge exchange and observational studies, the team garnered invaluable insights. These lessons promise to profoundly influence and shape the evolution of Sri Lanka’s own social security system.

One of the landmark outcomes from this tour is Sri Lanka’s prospective launch of a comprehensive national social security model. A noteworthy feature of this initiative is the introduction of an unprecedented unemployment insurance scheme. The goal is clear: to fortify a more robust, just, and secure employment landscape for Sri Lankans across both formal and informal sectors.

Labour and Foreign Employment Minister Manusha Nanayakkara expressed his gratitude to the International Labour Organization (ILO) for orchestrating such an enriching learning experience in Indonesia. He further emphasized the Sri Lankan government’s staunch commitment to mirroring similar successes in their homeland.
