Many new school buildings too have now been completed in this province and they are ready
for opening. 

Both PM Wickremesinghe and Health Minister Senaratne are regular visitors to North and I thank them for their interest towards the well-being of Northern people.”  The Framework for Economic Development Master Plan for the long term growth and development of the Northern province was launched in February 2019 by Finance and Mass Media Minister Mangala Samaraweera.
