Yapa to commence work today!

State Minister of Public Enterprise Development, Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena who was unable to commence work due to a lack of office space, will finally commence work today (19) at an auspicious time.

Yapa will commence work at 11.45 am at his office on the 36th floor of the World Trade Centre building, East Tower, Colombo 01.

Yapa had to delay taking over office as Cabinet Minister Kabir Hashim had utilised six of the nine offices allocated to Yapa’s ministry for a special project.

Hence, the ministry Secretary had intervened and provided an alternate office for the State Minister.

Lakshman Yapa was elected to parliament initially in 1994 and has been serving as a parliamentarian for the past 23 years as an MP, Deputy Minister, State Minister and Cabinet Minister.
