Regaining Sri Lanka – Complete version and older draft version

The Regaining Sri Lanka Framework was proposed by the United National Front Government in 2003 as a means through which economic development in some key sectors could augment the nascent peace process at the time. 

As the PM at the time, Ranil Wickremesinghe noted:

Economic re-construction and development, particularly of the areas devastated by war will be a deciding factor in sustaining the momentum of political negotiations. Development is part of the healing process in a wounded, divided society. Development is underpinning peace in Sri Lanka. Peace will sustain development. The two processes of peace and development have become inextricably inter-twined and inter-related.

They form the core of our vision of ‘Regaining Sri Lanka’ which provides the foundation for the restoration of growth and development of the economy.

The link to the website no longer works and there’s no complete record of the RSL documents I could easily find on the web – unsurprisingly, not even on the SCOPP website

This archive contains ALL the sections of the Regaining Sri Lanka framework and also contains an earlier draft of the framework that wasn’t at the time made public.
