Sri Lanka’s social security programs to be networked: Cabinet

June 30, 2016 (LBO) – Sri Lanka’s Cabinet has approved the Social Security Network Project to connect all social security programs, so that suitable persons have access to social security in a transparent manner.

“There is no method of identifying whether the benefits of social security programs are being directed to the suitable communities,” a statement said.

This is because there is no connection between various social security programs.

The proposal made by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, in his capacity as the Minister of National Policies and Economic Affairs, was approved by the Sri Lanka’s cabinet.
