The Cabinet of Ministers has taken another two weeks to submit their opinions on the expert committee report on the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) agreement, Co-cabinet Spokesman Higher Education, Technology and Innovation and Media Minister Dr. Bandula Gunawardena said.

“Since it is a comprehensive report, the Ministers wanted more time to go through it and submit a report,” the Minister said.

He further said that nobody should worry about this matter since the government under President Gotabaya Rajapaksa will never sign any agreement harmful to the country.

The Minister made this observation responding to a question by a journalist at the Cabinet media briefing held yesterday at the Government Information Department.


The final report of the committee headed by Prof. Lalithasiri Gunaruwan appointed to review the Millennium Challenge Corporation agreement presented its final report to Cabinet last week and all the Cabinet Ministers had been instructed to submit their opinion on the recommendations in the Report at the next Cabinet meeting.
