The Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) established by Government of Sri Lanka has pointed out the importance of providing the opportunity for Sri Lankan migrant workers returning Sri Lanka after completion of their overseas employment with their children to enroll their children to the Government Universities in Sri Lanka. In this regard, the Bureau of Foreign Employment of Sri Lanka, the institution coming under the purview of the Ministry of Telecommunications, Foreign Employment and Sports in consultation with the Ministry of Higher Education of Sri Lanka is now in the process of finding the actual requirement to develop required infrastructure in Sri Lanka to plan the future university admissions giving priorities for the children of migrant workers to enroll into the Government Universities.
Therefore, the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment has sought the assistance of Sri Lankan Missions/ Posts overseas to collect information of migrant worker’schildren who are expected to be enrolled into the Government Universities for their higher education during the next two years.
Therefore, the High Commission of Sri Lanka in Canberra requests the Sri Lankan migrant workers in Australia who are planning to return to Sri Lanka with their children to submit information on their children ( including the full name of the student and name of the degree etc.) who are expected to be enrolled into Government Universities in Sri Lanka.
