Unveiling of national economic policy, incentives to foreign investors soon: PM
Sri Lanka’s national economic policy and the attended opportunities and incentives offered to local and foreign investors will be unveiled very soon, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said.
The Prime Minister disclosed this during a special discussion with representatives of the Chong Jing Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation Company during his tour of North East China.
The Chong Jing Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation Company administered by the government of the Chong Jing Megapolis is among the 100 leading multinational organizations in China as well as one of the 500 leading service enterprises in China.
Chong Jing Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation Company chairman Yu Yang said once Sri Lanka unveiled its national economic policy, his company would provide all assistance and encouragement to entrepreneurs in the Chong Jing Megapolis to branch out and invest in Sri Lanka.
He said his company was already mulling the possibility of undertaking construction work in the proposed Hambantota Industrial Zone.
They have already paid attention towards setting up canned fish, gem and jewellery production industries as well as warehouses for export goods in the Hambantota Zone.
Yu Yang said he hoped to submit plans for building the Hambnatota Megapolis by utilizing the wide experience his company commended in the engineering and construction fields.
Prime Minister Wickremesinghe said that since Sri Lanka possessed a limited market, it hoped to enter into free trade agreements with various countries in the international field.
This would enable investors to reach out to a wider market through Sri Lanka, the Prime Minister said.
Chinese Ambassador to Sri Lanka Yi Shiang Liang, who was associated in the discussions, said China should lend all assistance to Sri Lanka to achieve massive economic development.
He said Sri Lanka – China bilateral relations was the best example of the close diplomatic relations existing between the two countries.

Have you seen a massive Bord-meeting this big in the world. I told you before 95% are over employed in Sri Lanka.
Well did’nt MY3 & RW say that they will be reducing the number in parliament. It seems that now there are more in Parliament and these jokers are complaining that MR spent and robbed too much money. What a bunch of Hypocrites
I think the time has come to forget party politics, race religion or any other thing, and get together as Sri-Lankans and work to a common goal that is to develop this country so that everyone could live peacefully
I totally and whole heatedly agree to your suggestion Concerned, but unfortunately I don’t think our politicians know how to work together Also there are not many intelligent people in politics now a days. Too many thugs in which ever party. The day the ruling parties started bringing in thugs with little or no brains in to politics was the day our politics started to go down the drain.
WE need some young blood.
Sri Lanka is so corrupted I don’t think that they can come out of it.
Please Mr concerned tell me your plan ( if there is one) to forget party politics, race religion or any other thing, and get together as Sri-Lankans and work to a common goal that is to develop this country so that everyone could live peacefully.
As I always say “talk is easy and words are cheep”.
There is no common goal. The Sinhala are better off giving a Federal State to Wigneswaran and then dealing with corruption in the South where thugs rule.
Kamalanathan Subramaniam You Are joking. Corruption in Tamil Nadu is 1000 times more than that of Sri Lanka.
If it is bad in Sri Lanka why don’t you bugger off to Tamil nadu. I am not stopping you all.
MR S Fernando! You are right. WE need some young blood and people who traveled and work abroad ( I don’t mean the cleaners) who can bring their expertise and knowledge.
So what is your plan. I like to here about it, that so that I can support you. It is no good blaming others if you cannot find a way out of this missilery.
