Technology vital for development - Minister
Sri Lanka has missed several technological waves which have flown
across the globe since country’s independence. There were technological
revolutions such as Electronic, ICT and Bio Technological revolution.
But unfortunately within last six decades Sri Lanka couldn’t adopt to
those technological waves said Technology and Research Minister Prof.
Tissa Vitarana. Nanotechnology waves are now spreading across the world.
Sri Lanka shouldn’t miss this opportunity. We should walk with these
technologies to overcome the technological challenges” he said.
Asian countries like India, South Korea, Thaliland and Singapore have
won those revolutions. Without technological improvements Sri Lanka
couldn’t achieve economic development, said Vitarana opening a Vidatha
Resources Centre at Thalawa, Anuradhapura.
