Recently, an 11-member National Economic Council chaired by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa was appointed to discuss the local economic policies in depth and manage the overall economy of the country.
The National Economic Council chaired by the President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, includes Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, Ministers Bandula Gunawardena, Basil Rajapaksa, Johnston Fernando, Mahindananda Aluthgamage, Dr. Ramesh Pathirana, Governor of the Central Bank Ajith Nivard Cabraal, Secretary to the President Gamini Senarath, Secretary to the Treasury SR Attygalle, and Deputy Governor of the Central Bank Dhammika Nanayakkara.
Does anyone reckon the National Economic Council consisting mainly of third rate cohorts ti the ruling family, will listen to the Advisory Committee?
For example, will the Trade Minister who claims a false PhD, ever listened to anyone?
The Advisory Committee is terrible too; consists of majority business people who became ultra rich by swindling the Nation.
The Company owned by the richest man in SL imported operating theatre waste from the UK to dispose in our emerald island.
They and others of similar ilk, are now advising the illiterates in the Council.
