Sri Lankan Delegation Undertakes Official Visit to India to Enhance Public Service Quality and Policy Implementation

A high-level delegation from Sri Lanka has commenced an official visit to India with the primary objective of gaining insights into the recent initiatives undertaken by India to qualitatively transform its public service and successfully implement policy improvements.

Led by Prime Minister’s Secretary, Anura Dissanayake, the 14-member delegation will be in India from February 12th to 17th. Their focus during this visit is to prioritize capacity development in Sri Lankan government institutions, contributing to the nation’s economic growth.

According to the President’s Media Division (PMD), the delegation is anticipated to engage in extensive discussions with Indian institutions. The program, to be conducted at India’s National Centre for Good Governance, will cover various aspects such as digitalization, capacity development, anti-corruption measures, and investment facilitation.

As part of their agenda, the delegates will meet with key Indian officials, including the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Minister of State for Personnel, and the Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister, to explore opportunities for further collaboration.

This capacity-building initiative is considered a significant stride towards realizing the shared goals of economic prosperity and sustainable development between Sri Lanka and India, as highlighted by the PMD. The initiative underscores the commitment of both nations to harnessing their collective potential for mutual benefit and regional stability.

The inception of this initiative can be traced back to discussions between Bharat Lal, the Director General of India’s National Centre for Good Governance, and senior Sri Lankan officials, including President Ranil Wickremesinghe and Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena.
