The Finance Minister also expects to present a description about the current economy of the country.

He also said a parliament debate on the Interim Budget would be held on February 5th and 6th.

Several relief measures to the masses have been promised under the 100 day program presented by President Maithreepala Sirisena as a candidate of the recently concluded Presidential election.

The waiving of import duty to reduce prices of 10 essential goods is one major step mentioned in the 100 day program.
