Clay, Cane, Brass, Furniture and Rural Industry State Minister Prasanna Ranaweera said yesterday that his Ministry will soon be moved from its current premises at the 36th floor of the World Trade Centre(WTC) to the “Ape Gama” premises at Battaramulla to save the Rs.8 million paid as rent for the WTC office and to facilitate easy access to islandwide craftsman.

Accordingly, Minister Ranaweera yesterday observed the “Ape Gama” premises with the representatives of the Ministry and Central Engineering Consultancy Bureau to make initial plans for the relocation of the Ministry from the WTC.

He said that he expects to move to the “Ape Gama” premises immediately since the current premises at the WTC is hardly accessible for the craftsmen in rural areas. This will also help to save a huge amount of public money,” he added.
