The Prime Minister assures the debt burden will not be passed on to the future generations

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe assures that the country's debt burden will not be passed on to the future generations. He says the country will be taken forward by obtaining foreign investments and generating new avenues of income. The Premier was speaking at the opening of a new three-story building at Welivita-Divithura divisional secretariat in Galle yesterday.

He also stressed the need of active contributions by public officials towards the successful implementation of 'Enterprise Sri Lanka' and 'Gam Peraliya' programmes. On the occasion, compensation amounting to more than 70 million rupees was distributed to the people affected by floods last year.
