Media Day at Deyata Kirula expo

COLOMBO: Today, the fifth day of “Deyata Kirula-Rata Dinana Heta Dinata” Educational and Development Exhibition has been declared “Media Day” where the Minister of Media, Anura Priyadarshana Yapa will participate as the chief guest. State and media private media institutions are actively taking part in the exhibition, believed to be one of the biggest exhibitions ever held in Sri Lanka.

A large number of people thronged the exhibition grounds yesterday despite Tuesday’s incident.

BMICH Director General Bandula Ekanayake said over 200,000 people had visited the exhibition on Tuesday and even more arrived yesterday.

There was no panic at all among the people as they were well informed about security arrangements, Ekanayake said.

The exhibition which ends tomorrow is a gateway to the development process envisaged under the 10 year “Mahinda Chintana” development programme.

The participants in the Exhibition are state institutions as well as private enterprises and the Government is not sharing any financial burden to conduct it as a large number of private sector organisations have come forward to finance it.

The exhibition is designed to display 14 facets of national importance covering the areas of Health Care and Social Welfare, Power and Energy, Provincial Councils, Media, Infrastructure Development, Finance, Commerce and Trade, Presidential Secretariat, Security, Public Administration, Industries, Education, Environment and Tourism, Agriculture, Transport and Private Sector. Exhibition hours span from 10 a.m. to 12 midnight daily.

The SLTB, Sri Lanka Railways and private bus operators are maintaining additional services for the convenience of exhibition goers.
