While claiming that the government is committed to walk an extra mile to establish permanent peace through reconciliation, President Mahinda Rajapaksa today said that no one has to tell Sri Lanka what to do.

“Sri Lanka is in the midst of peace won at great sacrifice. We are progressing on the path of peace and reconciliation. Our government is committed to walk that extra mile to establish permanent peace through reconciliation. That is our commitment to our people and no one has to tell us what to do,” the President said addressing ‘Sri Lanka Expo 2012’, organized by the Export Development Board (EDB) at the BMICH this morning.

The President said the presence of investors shows the failure of the efforts of those who still support the agenda of separatist terror that prevented development in Sri Lanka for more than three decades.

“You are here today, with a measure of confidence in Sri Lanka that has not been diminished by false propaganda that is currently spread by those who are trying to prevent investment flowing to our country and the large international presence at this event is a clear indication of the growing awareness in the world of the new investment opportunities in Sri Lanka,” said the President.

The President also said “What is showcased here is the rapid development process that Sri Lanka is engaged in today. It is a process that develops five hubs of key activity that will soon transform Sri Lanka to the Wonder of Asia as envisaged in Mahinda Chinthana, Future Vision, the wonder of a newly won peace and the wonder of strengthened peace and national unity. It is a wonder of reconciliation being achieved through our own means in keeping with our own traditions.”

Sri Lanka Expo – 2012 seeks to attract international buyers from every region of the world offering them a rich range of products and services that reflects a multi-cultural heritage a tradition of skilled craftsmanship and the best of modern skills in industry and services.

    At this point, SL needs some voices like this continuously and strongly to contra the false propaganda of those who try to cripple SL. And UNP should hand together rather than waiting for the political advantage.
