Regional people will be able to reap benefits while living in their own households, allowing them to enjoy a far better standard of life”
In Sri Lanka, Jaffna, Kandy and  Galle have potential to be developed as second tier cities so far, given the infrastructure already in place, current and planned development, their capacity to generate skilled workforces (through existing schools and universities), etc.
