Minister Johnston Fernando said that he is prepared to reorganize the network of Cooperatives as a service oriented movement. Addressing workshop the Minister noted that the cooperative network was being rebuilt.
The Minister said that the Government expects the CWE to be a service oriented organization than a profit oriented institute. Maintaining such an institute is not an easy task. If it disintegrates 2500 employees will be affected. This would have negative impact on the population of 20 million people. The Minister requested the employees to keep it in mind and protect the organization.
