Sri Lankan Independence Day message from the President

Filed on February 4, 2021
Gotabaya Rajapaksa, President of Sri Lanka

'Vistas of Prosperity and Splendour' mentions one of the important tasks will be to create a progressive national economy and a pluralistic society; we have to create an environment that provides our youth and local entrepreneurs with new opportunities, and gives everyone new hope and a sense of pride where people can use their skills, talents and business acumen to be the world leaders in any field of their choice.

It is only by empowering our people that we can strengthen and expand the national economy. Our responsibility is to create an enabling environment for a citizen to be prosperous and content, leading to a happy family and a law abiding society in Sri Lanka.

All over the world, environmental degradation has brought about havoc. Simultaneously, parts of our country have experienced severe drought and floods. It is, therefore, our responsibility to make our country, an example of sustainable development. At a time when nobody in the world thought it would be possible to bring peace to this country, we brought peace.

Similarly, we will make Sri Lanka prosperous and beautiful. I have great faith in our collective ability to do so.
