Sri Lanka informed it will not receive ADB, WB aid after 2019
Published Date: 09/09/2017 (Saturday)

Sri Lanka has been informed by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the World Bank (WB) that it will not receive any concessions or aid after 2019, Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe told Parliament today.

Wickramasinghe said this while making a special statement  to the House on the Central Highway Project.

Replying a query raised by opposition chief whip Anura Kumara Dissanayake, the Prime Minister said, Sri Lanka has to discuss how to obtain funds in future.

“We will not receive concession and aid after 2019. It has been communicated to us by the ADB and WB. It is better to discuss that how we can find the funds in future,” he said.

The Prime Minister also slammed some media institutions who have been critical of the Central Highway Project.
