    Cameroon is belongs to party of Conseversity that politics of UK has change agenda and his mindset.

    But UNP-RW still belongs to anti-China camp and as well as CBK of SLFP an opposed Investment from China.

    This is the tragedy of Sri Lankan politics has undermined our economic development by influence of Indian -RAW and US ‘war crime’ agenda.

    We are for any investments is support for our nation development is welcome.
    An Investment has no race ,color of any country as long it server of Development and democracy strategy of Sri lanka.
