    Filipinos, Indians, Lebanese, Bangladesh all speak better English than srilankans. Hence they are able to complete better at jobs and on the international job market. Back in the days all srilanks spoke good English, but not any more. Sad to see that srianlaks give Sinhalese and Tamil more importance. These are not languages with power like german, dutch, chinese and spanish. Sorry to say. Wake up!!

    Yes, good move, before reaching Sri Lanka those money, educate the ministers on how to ROB those US dollar 100 million without the knowledge of Treasury and the general PUBLIC.
