It is with great pleasure that I remind that, the policy of the government based on the present “Vistas of Prosperity and Splendour”, with the objective of building a prosperous Sri Lanka through four foundations, has been admired in a maximum manner by the people of Sri Lanka and has become the expectation of the people of Sri Lanka and it has indicated the dawn of the sustainable era of the safe environment.
It should be mentioned that the sustainable policy doctrine within the policy of this government is based on the usage of environmental resources to be utilized for the current needs, without hindering the needs of the future generations.
I emphasize that the foremost responsibility of the Ministry of Environment as well as of the Central Environmental Authority, is to dedicate towards the prosperity of the people within the safe environment and fulfilling sustainable development objectives through the present environment policy, while conforming to the government policy.
I wish the best for the Central Environment Authority, in the process of providing an excellent service for the public, and appreciate in fulfilling responsibilities entrusted to it towards activities such as environmental protection, management and upliftment, while eliminating complexities that prevail in environmental monitoring activities.
Minister of Environment.
