Senior Minister of International Monetary Cooperation and Deputy Minister of Finance and Planning Dr. Sarath Amunugama has said in spite of a long drawn out battle against terrorism for nearly three decades, and being further constrained by the 2004 Asian tsunami and the impact of the global recession, Sri Lanka had been a trend setter in integrating Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) effectively in to the national development agenda and ensuring realization of these targets.
Delivering the Sri Lanka national statement at the Inaugural Session of the High Level Segment of the Substantive Session of ECOSOC on the theme “Science, technology and innovation and the potential of culture for promoting sustainable development and achieving the Millennium Development Goals”, held at the Palais des nations in Geneva on 3rd July 2013, Minister Amunugama detailed the significant strides taken by Sri Lanka with respect to each of the MDGs. The Substantive Sessions of the ECOSOC which opened 1 July will continue in Geneva until 26 July 2013.
