Telecommunication towers to be reduced as part of govt Green initiative

It was announced that the number of telecommunication towers within Sri Lanka will be reduced as they are not environment-friendly.

Minister Mangala Samaraweera stated that there are around 50,000 telecommunication towers in Sri Lanka and that a tax will be imposed to reduce their numbers. He further stated that this will be done to establish a virtually blue-green institution within Sri Lanka.
