We have gone through the 8 requests made by the Youth at GotaGoGama and we can ensure you that progress is being made. As for the current economic crisis, we have two pronged approach. One will focus on short term economic stability and the other will be for long term sustainability
Short Term Solution to the Economic Crisis
Foreign Consortium for Financial Assistance
Sri Lanka's Prime Minister, Ranil Wickremesinghe, has already started working on a solution to the country's current predicament.
Prime Minister Wickremesinghe has started talks on forming a foreign consortium to provide financial help.
The Prime Minister has met with the Ambassadors , High Commissioners and foreign envoys representing Asia, Europe, North America and the Middle East.
He has also held discussions with multi lateral agencies including the IMF, ADB, World Bank and UN agencies.
Long Term Solution toward Economic Stability
The IRON Frame - Economic Framework
Through out our history, Sri Lanka's economic policy has been changed by the successive governments. This has dramatically impacted the investor confidence and economic stability.
If a long term economic framework is implemented, the country's development would remain consistent irrespective of the Government.
Our plan is to develop an economic framework as strong as a great iron frame. We are in the progress of developing it. When it is fully developed, we will get it approved by the Parliament.
- 21st Amendment to the Constitution to be presented to the Cabinet. This amendment will transfer power from the Executive Presidency to the Parliament while strengthening the independent institutions such as; the Judiciary, the Election Commission, the Bribery Commission and the Police.
-PM's Office expenditure reduced by 50%
- New Cabinet Ministers are foregoing their salaries and the Ministerial benefits limited
- A relief budget for the year 2022 will see a drastic reduction in Government expenditure and increased welfare for those who are marginalised due to the crisis.
