Construction work on an academic and administrative building costing Rs. 609.89 million has started at the Jaffna Institute of Higher Technological Education.

Another Rs. 30 million has been set apart to improve the quality of existing courses and introduction of new courses at this Technological Institute while Rs. 14.45 million has been earmarked for improvement of its infrastructure facilities, the Ministry said.

Steps have also been taken to set up a new Institute of Higher Technology at Vavuniya costing Rs. 65 million and another Rs. 60 million had been allocated for improvement of basic facilities at the new university at Vavuniya due to be completed in 2011.

Meanwhile, the Education Ministry said programs costing Rs. 576 million launched to bring about a qualitative improvement in the country’s Higher Education field would be completed before next year.
