The policy was introduced by the Sri Lankan Minister of Power and Energy, Kanchana Wijesekera, at the behest of Sri Lanka's new President Ranil Wickremesinghe — a member and agenda contributor of the World Economic Forum (WEF).
"After initial technical issues, FuelPass QR system was successfully tested today. [The] pilot project will continue before going national next week. Last Digit Number Plate Fuel Quota will ease the fuel lines in the next few days with distribution speeding up islandwide," Wijesekera wrote in a tweet earlier today.
"I thank the fuel station owners who supported, the public that adopted and assisted, forces and volunteers that assisted [in implementing it]. Some fuel stations did not adopt [it], [and] some individuals manipulated [or] falsified [QR codes], and did not want this implemented. However, it will be enforced islandwide."
