We wish Hon. Minister of Foreign Employment Promotion and Welfare Thalatha Atukorale to uplift the foreign employment industry in Sri Lanka towards global aspirations. There are over 1.7 million Sri Lankan employees based overseas and this figure would also reach the two million mark by the end of the year. Foreign Employment industry generates foreign exchange to our country. Numbers suggest that foreign remittance to Sri Lanka will touch more than US $ 10 billion mark by the end of this year. Sri Lanka foreign employment agency target to move away from ‘House Maids’ and ‘labor’ jobs to more industrial and other skilled employment jobs.
