The Government says with necessary political and economic reforms taking place, investment and trade and ultimately jobs, growth and economic development will follow.

Minister of Foreign Affairs Mangala Samaraweera speaking at the 20th Meeting of the Governing Council of the Community of Democracies in Geneva said as the relationship between peace and development is holistic and dynamic, the faster the peace dividend and faster the likelihood and durability of peace.

The Minister said in a nutshell, the people’s purses must feel the benefits of reconciliation, peace and ethnic harmony and they must feel them fast. Commenting on the country’s democracy, Minister Samaraweera said the best example of resilience and strength of Sri Lanka’s democracy was the Presidential election that took place in Sri Lanka on the 8th of January 2015.

The Minister also noted that Sri Lanka is in the process of repealing the Prevention of Terrorism Act and introducing new counter-terrorism legislation that is in line with contemporary international best practices.

He said that the Community of Democracies must find ways and means of standing together to assist each other in times of peril, especially when faced by terrorism which threatens the fundamentals on which democracy is based.
