Message from the Hon. Ranil Wickramasinghe, M.P, Leader of the Opposition
I view the establishment of an Academy for Good Governance for South Asian Region including Sri Lanka as a very special task.
Selection of fast developing city of Anuradhapura for the establishment of this academy, reminding our glorious ancient history deserves a word of praise.
Good governance has become an important subject for broad discussion both at national and international levels. Therefore origination of a centre in order to deeply study a subject of that nature is a great opportunity for religious dignitaries belonging to different faiths, leaders of Political Parties, Trade Union Activists , Business Community and Civil Society Activists. This will help to improve the level of political culture in Sri Lanka and the South Asian Region setting an example of good governance before the whole world.
I extend my warmest greetings to Samadeepa Samaja Kendraya dedicated to initiate this splendid effort and wish every success in the programme.
