President Maithripala Sirisena speaking at the UN Sustainable Development Summit 2015 assured that the Government of Sri Lanka anticipates achieving sustainable development by 2030.

“The Government of Sri Lanka fully supports the adopted Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda, Sustainable Development Goals and targets. I declare that the Government act with the determination of a pioneer of eco-sensitive civilization emerging in the 21st century. 

Sustainable development encapsulates the equilibrium between social and economic development and environmental protection. The Government anticipates achieving these goals fully by 2030. Sri Lanka’s rich history, dating back beyond 2,500 years provides us with inspiration and strength in this endeavor,” President Sirisena said.

More than 150 world leaders have attended the UN Sustainable Development Summit from 25th to the 27th of September at the UN headquarters in New York to formally adopt an ambitious new sustainable development agenda.
