SL Post could become major player in economy - President
President Gotabaya Rajapaksa said the Sri Lanka Post could become a major player in the national economy if it recognises the scope of its services.
This goal can be achieved by properly managing the vast resources of the Post, the President added.
The President mentioned this while speaking at a discussion held on the future plans of the State Ministry of the Professional Development of Postal Services and Mass Media.
It has been revealed during the discussion that the Postal Department loses Rs 6 billion annually.
The focus was also on establishing a training institute to develop professional skills of journalists and amending the Press Council Act.
It was also decided to reactivate the taxes levied on the telecasting of dubbed foreign tele-dramas.
