    JO. Arrange busses for a 'massive' protest next week. Where do you prefer? Galle face, hyderabad park or campbel? Or you can even block all roads in colombo. But don't bring children, who knows? Something might 'collapse' just like the JO.

    With this only the Buyers in EU (Importers) will benefit, initially. But very doubtful of coming new investors since this would last about three years. Besides that will the Buyers of B'desh etc will immediately change their contacts, just b'xe SL got the GSP.
