by Zacki Jabbar

Australia is to give a boost to the  Sri Lankan private sector by assisting in the creation of jobs.

The Australian High  Commissioner Robyn Mudie who concluded her stint in Sri Lanka recently, in an interview with "The Island" prior  to her departure said  that trade in services was where she saw  the real breakthrough taking place, particularly in tourism and education.

"In the future, Australian development cooperation will be used to help create job opportunities in the private sector for unemployed women and men", she revealed adding that  her government  would continue to support women’s economic empowerment through better access to training and work as well as by helping to tackle gender based violence, which  would not only address inequality but generate significant economic and social dividends.
