The recent budget was a balancing act taking the hard political and economic realities into consideration and exporters and importers in Sri Lanka should make it work according to their advantage, Economic Reform, Science and Technology, Minister Milinda Moragoda said. The Minister was addressing a seminar organized by the Exporters Association of Sri Lanka on Friday.
He said the Government is heading towards the right direction and adopted its policies considering the liberalisation of international trade, globalisation of capital markets and the information and communications technology revolution as the key factors of the current world economic trend.
“Globalisation is the challenge that we all have to face. We can take globalisation as an opportunity. Liberalisation of international trade and globalisation of capital markets is already happening. We have already decided that our human resources, our technical abilities and our entrepreneurial skills can give us a real advantage in creating an ICT centre for Southern Asia.
