Sri Lanka’s economic summit 2015 Updates

The following are highlights of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s presentation at the 2-day annual Sri Lanka Economic Summit organised by the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce which opened in Colombo on Tuesday at 9 am:

* 22 economic development areas to be set up under the United National Party-led coalition (UNF) after the August 17 poll.

* 2.5 million freehold/titles lands under a UNF government * Some probes by the Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID) are nearing completion. The corruption that took place (during the last regime) was very sophisticated and as a result we have sent officers abroad for training (to deal with these complex crimes).
