The staff of the Sri Lanka Insurance Corporation has the prime responsibility of rebuilding public confidence in their institution and transforming it to be the giant in the field of insurance, President Mahinda Rajapaksa said.

The President said this when he made a surprise visit to the Sri Lanka Insurance Corporation head office yesterday morning on an inspection tour.

Addressing the Corporation staff, the President said the Government had rendered a great service towards strengthening the public sector. The word ‘privatisation’ had been erased from the government vocabulary and it was spending colossal funds to maintain certain unprofitable State ventures.

The Government had also implemented a series of measures to rebuild the Sri Lanka Insurance Corporation and the institution would be able to attain all set targets if the employees rendered a dedicated service, the President said.

The President also requested all staff to render their unstinted cooperation to the newly appointed Chairman and Board of Directors to help them improve quality and service to its clients. State Revenue and Finance Minister Ranjith Siyambalapitiya, and Secretary to the President Lalith Weeratunga accompanied the President.

The new Board of Directors led by Chairman Pradeep Kariyawasam and CEO Nalaka Godahewa were present.
