USAID to fund SL’s renewable energy projects


The US Agency for International Development (USAID) will fund renewable energy projects in Sri Lanka, said US ambassador Julie J. Chung.

She said so during a meeting with president Gotabaya Rajapaksa in Colombo today (28).

The president said that he was looking forward to the US for its support for Sri Lanka to reach out to the International Monetary Fund.

The ambassador commended the government’s decision to go to the IMF and said it was important for the country’s future.

Rajapaksa also said that low-income earners would be provided relief regardless of economic reforms.

Chung tweeted later, “I met with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to discuss SL’s economic challenges and how we can work together to promote inclusive governance and protect human rights.”
