"For Sri Lanka to improve its economy to bring prosperity to its people and become the "Wonder of Asia" as stated by H.E. the President, it is imperative to appreciate the fierce competition our goods and services have to face today in the global market. This could be worse in the decades to come. This competition has to be overcome if we are to win the economic war. This demands the infusion of technology and innovation to make our products and services capable of overcoming the competition from goods and services from overseas in the open market."
