All govt. offices to move to govt. buildings Featured

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has instructed that steps be taken to move the ministries and state institutions maintained in private buildings to government owned buildings.

It is believed that this will save over Rs. 10 billion a year.

It was with the intervention of the President that steps were taken to move the Ministry of Agriculture to the Govijana Mandiraya which had been built for the Ministry of Agriculture instead of the private building acquired by the previous government for the Ministry of Agriculture.

In this manner, about 30 government ministries and institutions that were already housed in private buildings have been relocated to government buildings and steps have been taken to relocate all government institutions that were housed in private buildings to government owned buildings before the end of this year.
