President Maithripala Sirisena said Sri Lanka will act with determination as a pioneer of eco-sensitive civilization that is emerging in the 21st century to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and targets adopted by the United Nations. 

President assured that the Government of Sri Lanka fully supports the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals and targets that have been adopted by the Assembly.

Addressing the UNGA Session on Sustainable Development in New York yesterday, President Sirisena said sustainable development encapsulates the equilibrium between social and economic development and environmental protection.

President Sirisena assured the world leaders that the Government of Sri Lanka anticipates achieving these goals fully by 2030.

Parallel to this, while emphasizing on the protection of natural resources, President said the government will also formulate a state policy on resource consumption based on the sustainable capacity of the environment.

President said this indicates that even many centuries ago, our ancestors possessed the wisdom and awareness of the Sustainable Development Triangle.

As inheritors of this traditional knowledge and influenced by their ancient wisdom which will be adapted to meet the requirements of the modern era, Sri Lanka stands prepared to meet challenges successfully and march forward gloriously in the 21st century.
