The President says the Moragahakanda Project is a strength to the National Economy.

President Maithripala Sirisena says that the Moragahakanda Project is a great strength to the National Economy. It is a foundation for a prosperous country, as it changes the entire culture of the farming community. The president hopes that the project will receive the blessings of Mother Nature. The Moragahakanda Project was scheduled to be completed 5 years ago. However, the task could not be completed due to many a misappropriation that took place in the political culture at that time. The President expressed these views participating at the National Ceremony to mark 40 years of Mahaweli Splendour, that was held this evening. The significant attainment by this project is the solution it brought to the drinking water issue in the areas surrounding the project. 

Joining in the ceremony, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe said, it is a pleasure to note that the project reached its completion under the consensus government. He added that parallel to this project, Trincomalee will be converted into an Industrial Service Center.
