Production fertility in Sri Lanka lowest in Asia

Sri Lanka BUSINESS:: Production fertility in Sri Lanka lowest in Asia: Thursday, 1 September 2005 - 2:27 AM SL Time
According to a survey held on worker population, the working hours of a government sector employee is 2 hours and that of a public sector employee is there hours, said Herath Yapa, Labour Department Employees` Education Section Labour Commission recently.

He was addressing a Mahapola `Nana Pahana` education programme, held at the Deyyandara M.M.V.

He further said that Sri Lanka has the lowest production fertility rate in Asia. In 1977 the late President J. R. Jayawardana had pledged the country would be developed like Singapore. But it never materialised, he said.

A country progressed when production in agriculture was increased. In developed countries, agriculture was developed to its highest potential, Herath said.

The commissioner added that in Sri Lanka, increase in workers` re-numeration was not commensurate with the increase in input. The workers debateed on salary anomalies but did not put heart and soul to their work, and the economy kept divindling daily, Herath said.
