But we have laid out plans to solve these issues with a clear vision…We will create a long term national policy and enable students from grade 7 onwards to enter various streams of education and gain better knowledge… We will provide IT training to those who enter the Arts stream, so they can contribute to the economy directly, once their graduate.” – Gotabaya Rajapaksa
