Drought pushes CEB to impose power cuts

Half-an-hour power cuts will be imposed from end of this month on an area-by-area basis as hydropower generation has been hit by a prolonged drought, Ceylon Electricity Board Chairman E.A.S.K. Edirisinghe said. He said the CEB was trying its best to avoid the Western province when power cuts are imposed as it could have an adverse impact on the economy.(冒頭引

Additional teeth or dentures to CEB

The CEB has an estimated 15,000 employees, and is allegedly overstaffed. Hence, the government is forced to inject colossal amount of money as remuneration. The surplus is largely due to political appointments and according to qualified Engineers, these employees do not make any positive or productive contribution to the day-to-day operation of the CEB.

China announces green funding for Tibet

China plans to spend 15bn yuan (£1.5bn) on environmental protection in Tibet, including measures to halt the encroachment of deserts on the roof of the world, the state media reported today. Although the new money is presented as green spending, Tibetan exile groups fear much of it will be used to fund ecologically and culturally damaging development projects, including the damming of rivers and measures to force nomads off high-altitude pasture lands.
