President Gotabaya Rajapaksa emphasized the need of preventing brain drain to achieve rapid development in the country

‘If the Government as well as the private sector can ensure that a high standard of education is provided by local universities and other higher educational institutions, it may even be possible for us to start attracting international students to study in Sri Lanka and convert the higher education sector into a foreign exchange earner for the country’, the President said.
