Jan 25, Colombo: The parliamentary Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) evaluating the performance of state institutions in Sri Lanka will summon officials from the National Education Commission (NEC) to discuss the failure to utilize the funds given by foreign donors to the country's education sector.

Leader of the House, Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva has said the COPE will question the NEC officials on the failure to utilize funds received from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the World Bank in the past five years.

The Minister made this comment in response to a question on the matter posed by United National Party (UNP) parliamentarian Buddhika Pathirana.

According to de Silva, the Education Ministry has conducted an inquiry on the under-utilization of Rs. 20 million given to the education sector by the ADB and World Bank.

The Minister said that proper action will be taken to address the shortcoming.
