National Productivity Secretariat (NPS)
NPO Established: 1966


Sri Lanka joined the APO in 1966, and the Management Development and Productivity Center under the Ministry of Industries was established in 1968. It later became the National Institute of Management, and then the National Institute of Business Management. In 1994, the Ministry of Industries felt the need to strengthen the NPO and speed up the dissemination of productivity promotion techniques throughout the island. Hence, the National Productivity Secretariat (NPS) was set up as a separate unit.

In 2001 the function of the National Productivity Secretariat were transferred to the Ministry of Employment and Labour, which deals with the total workforce in Sri Lanka. After the transfer, the NPS was upgraded and a new office established. From the end of 2002, the NPS has functioned as the implementing organization of the national productivity policy. Very recently the present government has established the Ministry of Productivity Promotion, and the NPS is working under that ministry as the implementing arm of the productivity drive in Sri Lanka.
