President Maithripala Sirisena says the country must realise the dream of overcoming development challenges while conserving the environment.

The President expressed these views during an event held in Kurunegala on Sunday, February 12.

President speaking at the event noted that the green dream, is a collective dream of the entire global human community.

” The entire global human community has dreams. I too had a dream about the Moragahakanda Reservoir. I made that dream a reality. Thousands of people travel from across the country today to witness how this reservoir has been filled with water. As a result of the opening of this project, several giant water projects will be opened in the Wayamba Province. Some people say that the government is doing nothing. Both offices that were opened today (Feb 12th), should have been in operation, 25 or 30 or 40 years ago…” added President Sirisena.

The President also spoke on various rackets that have become an obstacle to achieving the green dream.

The Kurunegala Office of the Department of Immigration and Emigration, was declared open yesterday.President Sirisena also opened offices of the Department of Registration of Persons in the Kurunegala District.

The centralisation of all offices of the Wayamba Province Agriculture Ministry in the Mahagedara Complex, was also held under the auspices of the President.

President Sirisena also participated in the environmental exhibition which was held parallel to the Wayamba Green Revolution Programme.

Manufacturers of environment-riendly products were felicitated at this event.
