Investment Promotions Minister Lakshman Yapa Abeywardene said Sri Lanka's unemployment rate has gone down to an unprecedented level of 4.2 percent which is on par with the unemployment rate in many developed countries.

He said Sri Lanka has become a country which no longer provides cheap labour in the region.

The minister said there were more than 15,000 vacancies in the Katunayake, Seethawaka, Koggala and Biyagama Free Trade Zones.
