Former Minister G.L. Peries says that the statement made by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe on the government’s economic policy is precarious.
He said the aim of this statement is to create a structural body in order to privatize the public enterprises.
The statement was made at a media conference organized by the Voice of Scholars in Colombo this morning.
Making a statement on the government’s economic policy, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said that a limited company to claim ownership of Public Enterprises should be set up to make such enterprises commercially successful.
He reiterated that unpopular actions would have to be taken to mitigate the current economic situation thereby creating a better future for the generations to come.
