Colombo (News 1st): The Asian Development Bank will give Sri Lanka US$ 145 million for higher education in science and technology. This includes developing curricula with industry inputs to nurture a new breed of technology-oriented graduates.

A statement said Sri Lanka’s education system is facing several challenges in delivering quality learning relevant to the labour market, particularly in science, technology and engineering. It added, encouraging more women to take technology disciplines will increase women’s career opportunities in technical areas where wages are high.

In addition, the project will develop a future project proposed for 2021 focusing on research and development capacity. The government will provide an additional US$ 20 million for the project.
