    If the President is serious to Improve the economy of the country he should bring the two most corrupt individuals who raked Billions of rupees to other countries plus the others. President Gotabaya is the only person who can do this,if he can put away friendship and relationship for the sake of the country like a straight forward Ancient King. First the two are Cabral and Mahendran. The relations are the Rajapaksha clang.
