    It is a waste of time/tax payer money to travel the world with a begging bowl. Investors always look for opportunities It SL can create the right environment, they will be here.
    Here are area few things you can do to start:-get rid of price controls( back from the 60s)-
    create a consistent tax/economic policy environment-
    create an environment that respect law and order(stop interfering with judiciary which PM is famous for doing)-
    Get rid of corruption within your government/party (you only provide lip service now). Just take page from what PM Modi is doing in India. He always asks is this good for India SL politicians ask is this good for my party and what is in it for me-
    Stop wasting tax payer money in the name of attracting investment-Do you need 100 member cabinet to run 80bn economy? Get the car -crazy cockroaches out who live off the poor women who send remittances from the Middle East. -Sri Lanka has no future until the people elect honest, law binding leadership.

    PM you travel the globe every month spending the tax payers money. How much investment have you got. Your government is only talk no action. You can't even sell the HIlton. Start by selling vast holdings of gov land in Colombo to keep the price down.
