Opposition Leader reveals road to economic development via digital technology (VIDEO)

The economy of this country can be boosted by generating computer and digital technology related jobs and a targeted programme should be implemented in this regard, said Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa joining the occasion of donating digital screens and computer equipment worth Rs. 846,000 to classrooms of WP/Jaya Mahamaya Balika Vidyalaya today (10), as part of the 17th phase of the ‘Sakwala’ Program, an initiative undertaken by the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) for a bright digital future for Sri Lankan children with technological and sophisticated computer skills and state of the art technology based knowledge.

These digital equipment were handed over to school Principal M. Chamila Kumari.

Premadasa noted that ‘Sakwala’ will be implemented throughout the country and that his aim is to expand the initiative to at least 50 schools this year and to equip the children of Sri Lanka with five computers using digital technology.

Through Sakwala, steps will be taken to make the children of this country an intelligent and talented group, the Opposition Leader added.

The aim of providing buses to schools was to provide the necessary facilities for the children to go to school, Premadasa commented about his act of donation, adding that this distribution will continue despite whoever criticises him.

Italian Ambassador to Sri Lanka Rita Giuliana Manella and representatives of the Samagi Vanitha Balawegaya, the women’s wing of the SJB, also graced the occasion with their presence.

The ‘Sakwala’ initiative is also holding a special programme aiming the International Women’s Day as well.
