President Gotabaya Rajapaksa requested the heads of research organizations to find ways and means to uplift a small country such as Sri Lanka with a comparatively small population and an economy.
Since the current global economy is based on knowledge, ours should be developed centered around our workforce that can be easily trained, President observed.
President Rajapaksa made these observations during a meeting held at the Presidential Secretariat today (13) with Chairmen and Director Board members of state- sector research entities.
This is the fourth of the series of meetings organized to enlighten heads of government institutes on ‘Saubagyaye Dekma’ Policy Statement, stated president’s Media Division.
Heads of Hector Kobbekaduwa Agrarian Research and Training Institute, National Science Foundation, Arthur C. Clarke Institute for Modern Technologies and Institute of Post-Harvest Technology were among the participants.
