Basil calls for special focus on foreign employment issues

Minister of Finance Basil Rajapaksa has instructed officials to solve the problems of those who go abroad for employment as soon as possible.

A statement issued by the Ministry of Finance states that the Minister attended a progress review meeting with the Foreign Exchange Flow Task Force held at Temple Trees last Friday (10) and these statements were made at that meeting.

The Minister emphasized the need to remove any obstacles as soon as possible as there is a high demand for Sri Lankans in the foreign employment market.

He further stated that while the growth in foreign employment will continue to strengthen the economy, active development projects within the country will also continue.
