The meeting was held under the patronage of Minister Rauff Hakeem recently at the Ministry Auditorium to evaluate the status of the projects launched in various districts in Sri Lanka with the financial assistance from the Ministry of City Planning and Water Supply. The Ministry has launched various development projects in many parts of the country to meet the needs of the community and to uplift their living standards. 

Public projects, including construction of children’s parks, jogging paths, cultural centres, drainage systems, water tanks, shopping complexes, and public libraries as well as 428 road development projects are currently underway with the financial assistance of the Ministry.

Of these projects, 143 have already been completed in Anuradhapura, Trincomalee, Ampara, Kurunegala, Gampaha, Batticaloa, Kandy, Mannar and Kalutara districts, and will be handed over to the public soon.
