Secretary to the Ministry of Urban Development, Water Supply and Housing Facilities: Dr. Piyath Bandu-wickrama says, creating a proper “physical resources plan” under the development programme aimed on a “prosperous vision” is one of the main processes of the new government.
Speaking to the SLBC, he said, the government’s intention is to launch a long-term development plan, covering all sectors.
Dr. Bandu-wickrama says, the government hopes to focus its attention on following proper procedures, when developing roadways, and providing electricity and telephone facilities.
He further stated, a “national housing plan” will be launched to meet the housing requirements of all people, and a plan to enable the purchase of houses – within the buyer’s economic means – will be implemented.
He also said, steps will be taken under the Ministry of Water Supply, to provide clean drinking water for everyone.
