Introduction

The National Human Resources and Employment Policy (NHREP) is the overarching policy framework of the Government of Sri Lanka that would govern its human resource development work and action to be taken to provide full, decent and productive employment to Sri Lankans. The NHREP has been developed out of the overall state policy since 2005 as formulated in the Mahinda Chintana framework. The NHREP covers a number of subject areas that are of relevance and significance in human resources development and employment promotion work. Policy statements contained in this document are consensus views arrived at through lengthy consultations among all stakeholders – government officials, employers’ organizations, workers’ organizations, professional bodies and the academia.

 

Overview

Vision

“Sri Lanka - the Wonder of Asia” in which all persons of working age become globally competitive and multi-skilled, and enjoy full, decent and productive employment with higher incomes in conditions of freedom, equity, security and human dignity.

 

Macroeconomic Policy Context

  • GDP growth of Sri Lanka over the last five year period has been maintained at a healthy average of over six per cent per annum with the rate for 2010 and 2011 at slightly above 8 per cent. The projected growth rate for 2012 is slightly over 7 per cent but measures are planned to bring back the annual average growth rate to the 8 per cent mark after 2012. The government’s Medium-Term Macroeconomic Framework (MTMF) presents a positive outlook reflecting a favourable macroeconomic environment, characterized by conditions of sustained peace, low inflation, improved business confidence, stable fiscal management and low interest rates. Sustainable employment creation requires a policy-mix that promotes growth and investment in the productive sectors of the economy with appropriate combinations of monetary, fiscal, exchange rate, trade and real sector policies. Efforts would be made to ensure that fiscal, monetary and credit policies are linked to the objective of generating sustainable employment.
 

Human Resources Planning, Development and Productivity

The Context

  • The importance of planning and development of human resources in a country’s development process cannot be over-emphasized. Effective human resource planning implies that sufficient human resources, with the right mixture of talent, are available in appropriate locations, performing their jobs according to their skills and aspiration.
