The State Engineering Corporation (SEC) will give priority to local manufacturers and contractors when doing purchases for engineering projects in the future.
State Engineering Corporation Chairman Prof Ashu Marasinghe said Cabinet approval has been granted recently to give priority to local products at the purchases made by State institutions.
It has been decided that the State Engineering Corporation will follow this decision at its purchases.
He said utilizing local products for the development process in the country would satisfy many aspects in the field of development and it will also lead to enhance local raw material market and generate job opportunities.
