    If we do not keep up with modern technology, systems become redundant and as such Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) had to re-invest as some of the investments made between 2012-2014 had not been fruitful. However, as a group Sri Lanka Telecom earns profits of around Rs. 4.4 billion even today. However, as we need to service our loans we need new initiatives. As such we have proposed to go for an IPO on Mobitel in the stock market and we have the ability to be a strong force in the Colombo Stock Exchange and we have the ability of venturing into new investments, Telecommunication, Foreign Employment and Sports Minister Harin Fernando said.
