United National Party (UNP) Deputy Leader Wajira Abeywardana said the country’s economic outlook is improving by the day and the people will be able to reap the benefits of economic prosperity in the future.

He said this situation has dawned on the country due to the farsighted vision of President Ranil Wickremesinghe who took over as President a few months ago.

“President Wickremesinghe is an asset to the country when considering the tireless work he is currently performing on behalf of the people who underwent immense hardships due to lack of petrol, diesel, gas, kerosene, fertilizer and other commodities,” he said.

The UNP Deputy Leader was speaking at the UNP area Balamandala meeting held at Bandaragama in the Kalutara District. The meeting was organised by former UNP Pradeshiya Sabha Opposition Leader Mahesh Kothalawala.

UNP stalwarts former Minister Dr. Karunasena Kodituwakka and former Kalutara District UNP MP Lakshman Wijemanna were also present on the occasion.

Abeywardana further said the President was also able to resurrect the country’s fledgling economy and put it back on track.

“As we all know the President’s next aim is to carry out the country’s future economic plans with the help of the international community. The country receiving International Monetary Fund assistance bears testimony to the successful economic management programme initiated by the President,” he said.

The UNP Deputy Leader also recalled how the country was developed by former President J.R. Jayewardene by establishing Free Trade Zones which created tens of thousands of employment opportunities for the country’s youth.

He said due to former President J.R. Jayewardene’s close association with the international community, the British Government gifted us the Victoria Dam and the Japanese Government gifted the country a number of projects including a television station and the Sri Jayawardenapura Hospital Complex.

Abeywardana further said like the former UNP leaders, President Wickremesinghe too has a farsighted vision and the strength to develop our country economically and bring normalcy back.

He said President Wickremesinghe’s main aim is to further bring down the Cost of Living and provide more relief to the people.

Abeywardana also said that people will never forget the dark days when Sri Lanka faced immense hardships before President Wickremesinghe took over the country’s leadership.
