The Youth filled with innovative ideas are needed to lift Sri Lanka as the miracle of Asia, Environment Minister Anura Priyadarshana Yapa said. He said not only subject knowledge but also vocational training is important to face challenges outside the school gates.
"Knowledge becomes the capital cost and innovative ideas become money in the future. It is easy to achieve future economic goals of the country if new entrepreneurs emerge. When students leave the school they must have trained some kind of skill. Therefore schoolchildren must be provided opportunities to attain vocational training while schooling" he said.
