Govt opens digital space for youth to earn dollars working from home

The government has embarked on a formal program to strengthen the banking system in order to establish the financial stability of the country, President Ranil Wickremesinghe said.

Emphasizing that he is in no way ready to turn Sri Lanka into a beggar country, the President stated that we as Sri Lankans must stand up with our own efforts and that the necessary program has been presented in this year’s budget.

The President mentioned this while addressing the function held Wednesday (23) at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall to commemorate the 86th birthday celebration of late Minister Lalith Athulathmudali.

Pointing out that Mr. Lalith Athulathmudali’s perception is to elevate Sri Lanka to the top of the international arena, the President further mentioned that he will establish a university named after Mr. Lalith Athulathmudali in Sri Lanka in the future for the study of post-graduate courses.

A digital space was also introduced at the occasion by the Lalith Athulathmudali Foundation to provide the Sri Lankan youth with the facility of independent access to the international market.

This project called ‘Lanka Dollar’ was launched recently to mark the commencement of a digital platform that enables Sri Lankans to earn foreign exchange from home.

‘Youth to Globe’ digital platform especially caters to youths to work for foreign employers without leaving the country.

President Ranil Wickremesinghe was the chief guest at the launch that was held at the BMICH in Colombo at the invitation of former minister Ravi Karunanayake as the chairman of the Lalith Athulathmudali Memorial Foundation.

Delivering a lecture on the occasion to commemorate the late politician, the president said the project would give a great boost to build a digital economy and for youth development

Karunanayake said in his speech that ‘Youth to Globe’ would be a turning point in the revolutionary journey brought about in higher education by the late Lalith Athulathmudali through his Mahapola scholarships.

The project aims to improve language, technical know how and other skills and to provide consultancy and coordination services for work-from-home international jobs.

Networking and promoting the field’s professionals and to act as an influencer in related decision-making are its other purposes.

The core objective is to retain the country’s human resources and to be a key source of foreign exchange earnings with the minimum use of resources.

This project by the Ceylon Global Trust will be assisted by the local branch of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) with consultancy services offered by local and foreign experts
