Sri Lanka has made achievements in a number of sectors including the economy.
Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris made this observation while addressing the International Islamic Conference held in Colombo. The Minister said that strength of Sri Lanka depends primarily on peace. A great transformation in every sector of life can be noticed. He said that Sri Lanka is a country with many inherent strengths. But the country has not been able to use these strengths for a very long time due to the problem of terrorism. To day the country has been able to leave the terrorism behind due to the leadership provided by President Mahinda Rajapaksa. He said that it is peace that enables them to reconstruct the nation.
