Minister Patali Champika Ranawka stated “Sri Lanka is currently engaged in formulating an Investment Framework for R&D for our country.  The framework, when finalized will form the basis for Government investments in the R&D sector.  The Framework will eliminate what the scientists are often blamed for - engaging in research projects which have meaning to the scientific world but which are not always an effective response to the development priorities of our own nation.  In formulating this Framework, we have adopted a participatory and inclusive process so as to ensure that the views of all stakeholders are obtained.” 

Minister made this observation at the Seventeenth Annual Session of the United Nations Commission on Science and Technology for Development (CSTD) held in Geneva, 12–16 May 2014.
