Constantly striving to empower all Government institutions to be conversant in technology, the leader of the ICT transformation in the Country, Sri Lanka Telecom Mobitel – who incidentally also pioneered the exclusive ‘Upahara’ package to the government sector – today takes pride in signing up with the National Transport commission to supply Mobitel Enterprise Solutions with the latest technology driven mobile communications services. The signing of the MOU took place at the National Transport Commission Auditorium in Colombo 5, in the presence of Private Transport Services Minister C.B Rathnayake along with NTC Chairman Roshan Gunawardena and Mobitel CEO Lalith De Silva.

Speaking at the event Private Transport Services Minister C.B Rathnayake commented, “At a time when the Government is engaged in a continuous large-scale development program, we have an enormous contribution to make towards this effort, just from the sphere of passenger transport alone. Here effective communication plays a big role to ensure efficiency of our job, and due to its volume, the investment we have to make towards this facility is large. It is in this context that we have signed up with Mobitel as we believe that their innovative Mobile Enterprise Solutions come at an affordable cost and will ensure value for money. And today I’m grateful to Mobitel for coming forward to partner with us in this endeavour.”  According to De Silva, “It gives me great pleasure to venture in to a strong relationship with a leading government institution such as the National Transport Commission. As the National mobile service provider we believe in creating synergies within the key Government sector institutions in order to drive the country to the next level of growth and development. We look forward to building similar associations with other key government stakeholders and thereby provide an even better and more affordable service to the entire nation.”

Gunewardena stated, “Our need is to have our Commission’s communication happen in the most efficient manner. Hence we are partnering with Mobitel, as they have given us the best and most efficient Mobile Enterprise Solution at the most competitive price.”
