Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena declared open the newly built apparel factory of the Hirdaramani group at Puthukkudiyiruppu in the country's north, saying it would help in resolving rising unemployment among the youth in the region, according to a report in news.lk, the Lankan official government news portal.

At the opening ceremony, President Sirisena said that the government has planned to launch new investment projects in the North where people are struggling with unemployment and poverty due to the civil war that lasted for nearly 30 years. The apparel factory provides employment to nearly 1,000 people in the district.

He pointed out that many investment plans have been offered by many local and foreign investors to help resolve the unemployment problem among the youth in the North. The future of the country is with the youth and the country can be built with their strength, utilizing their energy and ensuring their democratic rights to build the nation, he said.

The President exchanged views with the employees of the factory. Many of them requested the President to find their missing relatives, release the suspects under custody and about the shortcomings in development work. The President assured them to resolve all issues gradually, the report said. (SH)
