Budget Speech para. 74: "Work on the Bingiriya and Wagawatte Industrial Zones will be supported to further facilitate our export drive."
Information on progress was obtained through the Progress Report provided in response to the request for information filed under the Right to Information Act No 12 of 2016.
Based on the information made available, progress as at 31 December 2019 was assessed as 52% of the target set for 2019. The Progress Report provided the sub-activities of the project and their level of completion. However, information on the financial allocations of the sub-activities were not provided. Hence, progress was calculated as a weighted average giving equal weightage to each sub-activity.
The Ministry of Industrial Export and Investment Promotion was ranked 6th out of 16 government institutions assessed in 2019. The rank was determined based on the weighted average score of 71.7 received by the ministry (weighted average based on allocation). This score was based on the disclosure of information on 3 proposals assessed in 2019, which were under the purview of the ministry.
