President Maithripala Sirisena said yesterday the new government’s objective was to take the ideas and proposals of the scholars and intellectuals to utmost consideration for the forthcoming program to build the country.

The President expressed these views while addressing the 30th annual summit of Sri Lanka Economists’ Association, held in the auditorium of the Center for Banking Studies Sri Lanka.

He commended the 30 years course of the Economists’ Association and expressed his confidence over its close connection with the government in the future too.

President Sirisena pointed out that the knowledge and experience of the scholars were important in the economic, political and cultural reforms in the country. “It is everyone’s responsibility to join the program carried out by the new government to build the country by making transformation expected by the people”, he said.

“We should not remain elated over our proud history of thousands of years. We should be committed to preserve it to the future generations”, the President said.

He stated that the new government’s aim is to take the country again to a self-sufficient economy by developing the indigenous economy. “The government expects to make use of the knowledge, wisdom and experience of economists in preparing related plans and policies on this regard” the President further said.

Minister of Public Enterprise Development Eran Wickramaratne, President of the Economists’ Association Prof. A. D. V. de S. Indraratne and the Secretary of the Economists’ Association M. Sumanadasa also participated in this occasion.
