During an interview on the ‘Hot Seat’ programme telecasted on Newsfirst, Wijewardena also said that President Maithripala Sirisena had made a good choice by choosing Coomaraswamy to head Central Bank.
“I am very happy with Dr. Coomaraswamy’s appointment. He has worked with me at the Central bank and he is a fine economist, as well as he is a fearless economist when it comes to economic policy. He has criticized both the previous government policies as well as the current government policies. I think the President has made a good choice by appointing him as the Governor,” Wijewardena said.
