Can world class Lankans inspire the next generation?
There are many things that may make you feel
discontent about our nation. There will always be such things. But
there was cause this week to remind ourselves that we have and we
will always have world class Sri Lankans among us.
Towards a competent public service
Once upon a time, the public service in Sri

degree of professionalism. They had the ability to assist the
country’s leadership to set standards in managing human, financial
and material resources to achieve effective good government.
