Green economy possible through resource management

Jun 11, 2010 5:22:02 AM - itnnews.lk

Deputy Minister Faizar Mustafa has said that the county can be directed towards a green economy through streamlined resource management.

The Deputy Minister made this reference participating in a conference on UN Sustainable Development. The Minister pointed out that plans are afoot to appoint a Committee for a national sustainable policy based on the instructions of the President. Many problems have surfaced in the economic, meteorological, energy and drinking water fields due to the improper consumer framework in developed countries. However, Sri Lanka has been able to use human resources for development, ensuring the safety of natural resources. Prof. Mohan Munasinghe and representatives from Thailand, Japan and Pakistan participated in this occasion.
