Large investor presence, a valuable vote of confidence in Sri Lanka – President at Sri Lanka Expo 2012
You are a strong and valuable vote of confidence in Sri Lanka; an expression of growing trust in the new opportunities for export trade in a country that was famous for international trade from ancient days, President Mahinda Rajapaksa said.
Addressing "Sri Lanka Expo 2012”, organized by the Export Development Board (EDB) at the BMICH this morning, the President said the presence of investors here today shows the failure of the efforts of those who still support the agenda of separatist terror that prevented development in Sri Lanka for more than three decades.
“You are here today, with a measure of confidence in Sri Lanka that has not been diminished by false propaganda that is currently spread by those who are trying to prevent investment flowing to our country.
The large international presence at this event is a clear indication of the growing awareness in the world of the new investment opportunities in Sri Lanka, the President said.
