|Korean government launches Sinhala online web service|
"I hope this will improve the brotherly relationship between the two nations.”The Embassy of Sri Lanka in Seoul,South Korea launched an online web service named "e-People service" in Sinhala to help Sri Lankans residing in Korea to submit complaints and comments to the government in their native language.
This act is a significant way forward to minimize barriers to communication between the government and citizens, especially for the 23,000 Sri Lankans living in Korea who may feel language as an issue that prevents them from articulating their opinions and concerns. Earlier, issues and concerns may have remain unresolved or had to go through a complicated procedure due to language barriers.The e-People service will further build a more open and friendly society between the Korean government and Sri Lankans and strengthen the relations between the two countries. The Korean Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission(ACRC) Chairman Lee Sung-bo at the Ceremony stated that “We pledge to make consistent efforts to build clean and transparent nation in which everyone has equal rights and opportunities…I hope this will improve the brotherly relationship between the two nations.”
Civil petitions or complaints can be filed by logging on to the e-People website (www.epeople.go.kr) and clicking on the Sri Lankan flag icon.
