Message from His Excellency the President Mahinda Rajapaksha .
I am very much pleased to send this message to be included in the Year Book of South Asian Academy for Good Governance.
I thank Samadeepa Samaja Kendrya for establishing Community Development Research and Training Institute in order to create awareness among the citizens of this country on Good Governance when the attention of the world has been focused on this issue.
It is my belief that people can be directly involved in the development of the country when knowledge and awareness are created among the people on subjects such as Community Development and Community Management.
I always value the contribution of the organizations like you for the government policy, Build the village Build the country.
I wish all the success to South Asian Academy for Good Governance
