    The attention of the outside world has been drawn to our country's achievements like the construction of the massive road network, new harbours and airports. Therefore while being proud of our achievements, we should be ready to identify the strength of the country, said President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

    He also said though we were a dependent nation in the recent past, with the elimination of terrorism we are now self sufficient in food. Sri Lankan President pointing out that our country is on the path to rapid developmentm said still some people do not appreciate the country's achievements. They talk about Singapore, UK or France  when Sri Lanka has become a peaceful country with proud history and rich culture.
