The commission has communicated with various associations and organisations, government agencies, private sector bodies, non-government agencies, experts, and intellectuals among others to submit their feedback by May 12.
Considering the feedback to be received from the stakeholders, the government is planning to introduce programmes in the next year’s annual budget plan. The government will announce the plan on May 28 as per the constitutional provision.
