Ranil on peace and the economy at FCCISL forum

Opposition leader Ranil Wickremesinghe is addressing the business community next week on peace and the economy. He will speak on “Maintaining the balance of peace building and economic development: the way forward” at the monthly meeting of the Business for Peace (BPA) organized under the aegis of the Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Sri Lanka (FCCISL). The meeting is on February 20 at the JAIC Hilton, Colombo.

Business and economic analysts said it would be interesting to see whether the former prime minister and architect of the 2002 peace process and ceasefire would offer an ‘out of the box’ approach to take the process forward or whether he would also articulate a LTTE-bashing policy. The ceasefire has collapsed while the peace process is in tatters.
