    78 years old, still have young ideas for economy revival.

    Munsir, You must be kidding. I know the guy very well. Young ideas for economy revival? I think the economics Osthar Bandula Gunawardana would have been a better choice. He would have made sure to limit the income to only Rs 2500 per month to a family of four and, revive the economy!

    Oh, this is crazy decision. Somebody senior in the Central Bank should have been appointed. God save Sri Lanka. The Piper

    Good luck with the Central bank to have a Eighty Year old man as the Governor who will follow the Economic theories of 60s.

    Prof Lakshman did a good job in the University of Colombo. Best wishes to him in his new position.

    Bank directors have to retire at 70. This rule does not apply to central bank.
