Cooperative boost in North
The Northern Provincial Council will conduct a seminar for all
co-operative society members in the North today, organised by the
Presidential Task Force.
Northern Province Governor Major General G.A. Chandrasiri said the
Cooperative Task Force has organised a seminar in Jaffna gathering all
cooperative society staff members of the Northern Province to develop
the cooperative sector in the North.
“It was well known that the country’s best cooperative system existed
in the Jaffna peninsula.
Since the situation was unstable in the past, the cooperative system
drastically fell apart.
We want to reinstate that superiority in the Northern cooperative
system as the best in the island”, Chandrasiri told the Daily News.
He said senior cooperative society members from Colombo will address
the gathering. Many findings and researcher will be discussed.
Three Task Forces for the Northern Province to develop the
cooperative sector, industrial sector and rural development sector were
established by the Government.
