The Joint Opposition is preparing to request for a parliamentary debate on the Free Trade Agreement with Singapore and the country’s economy.

The JO Parliamentarian Bandula Gunawardena said that they hope to make a request to the Speaker at the next session.

The opposition against Sri Lanka - Singapore FTA is mounting as professionals and other stakeholders argue that the agreement has been signed without having proper consultation and awareness.
