The government has allocated increasingly bigger volumes of funds for Northern Provincial development in the past three years.

“This government has allocated massive funds for the development of the Northern Province and more projects are to be launched,” Minister of Industry, Commerce, Resettlement of Protracted Displaced Persons, Cooperative Development, Skills Development and Vocational Training, Rishad Bathiudeen told guests at the opening of a new hospital wing in Vavuniya recently.

The new health facility was unveiled by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. Minister Rajitha Senaratne was also present.

“Massive development work has been taking place in the Northern Province in the past four years,” said Minister Bathiudeen, adding, “On behalf of the people of North, I thank Prime Minister for his support to the Northern Province.

Health, education and housing have been the key sectors that showed great improvement in the Province in the past four years. Many new school buildings too have now been completed in the Province and they are ready for opening. Both PM Wickremesinghe and Health Minister Senaratne are regular visitors to North and I thank them for their interest towards the well-being of the Northern people.”

The Framework for Economic Development Master Plan for the long term growth and development of the Northern Province was launched in February by the Minister of Finance and Mass Media, Mangala Samaraweera.
