    August 12, 2014

    President Mahinda Rajapaksa is scheduled to declare open the Commonwealth Youth Council (CYC) secretariat at Hambanthota District Secretariat office complex today (12).

    President Rajapaksa in his capacity as Chairman-in-office of the Commonwealth will declare open the secretariat today to mark the International Youth Day which falls on August 12 every year.


    Sri Lanka hosted the World Conference on Youth (WCY) 2014 in May. In that meeting it was decided that a secretariat for the CYC should be established in Sri Lanka.
