Minister of Economic Development Basil Rajapaksa says that the Eastern Province is the best province to invest in Sri Lanka. The Minister made this statement at an international investment promotion forum held in Colombo on Friday.

“Invest in East”, an international investment promotion forum for Eastern Sri Lanka, was held in Colombo on Friday.

The forum was organised on the initiative of the Eastern Province Minister of Agriculture and Rural Industries Development, Naseer Ahamed.

Minister of Economic Development, Basil Rajapaksa shared views:

“I have been involved in the government for many years. But I have never seen a provincial council, taking the initiative in a new direction, to promote investment in the province. I would like to congratulate Naseer Ahamed for this.  I was in charge of Investment Ministry for a time, now I am not. But even I couldn’t do some of the things he has done. So please invest in the East. East is the best province to invest in Sri Lanka, with my experience.”
