I already said my opinion about this meetings and these countries. They are also not stupid to go out of their way to put crazy sanctions which can bite them back on their hiny unless it is essential. Am still trying figure out what is so essential to put these sanctions. Any ideas?


Most politics are for personal advantage or a benefit than standing up for absolute human rights.
Sri Lanka is not perfect, but are there countries which are bigger threats to them?


Also there are sides which we do not see. Verbal statements and warnings are to show superiority. But to take action they need to have very strong reasons and also moves that does not backfire.

Even if they do take action, as an investor it is good to first understand , where most of our revenue/investments come from. How much support, aid do we get from CW countries? Where are majority of the funds investing at CSE from?


If by chance there are any issues and market panics, it will be short term and an opportunity to buy.
If one is worried so much about fluctuations, they can stay away from the market until everything is fine ( hmm will it ever)

When it comes to stock market investment, investors will look at how safe their money is and can they get a return above average within their time span. I really doubt the Govn will be that stupid to play around with money that comes in as investments and do anything to spoil that. Did you see the demand for Sri Lankan Bonds? Even during UN human right meetings last year .



If you are living abroad, we can help more by talking about this issues with related parties who are looking at these in a totally negative angle. Ofcourse our Govn has faults and has also much to learn.
They need to understand that transparency and fairness will attract more. But right now the question is will these meetings attract less?

Also of they p**** off people, it is not the foreginer they will have to worry about ;-)

Having said all this, I do not uphold all what Sri Lankan govn does. They too should get their act together as
there is much to be done for better democracy and transparency. Also sometimes we need to leave ego aside to see a a bigger picture that can help better in the long term.

Politicians( lcoal and foreign) needs to know what short t term they can get their way by using power . But one fine day what happens when they loose it ?

I reckon this is the same issue... war crimes, HR .. all are the same. Anyhow, its up to you to how to interpret it.

World see quite differently. I am living outside the country , the opinion here on GOSL is quite negative. They believe all SL media is controlled.
All major institutions are against the removal of CJ and new appointment.
The move is going against us.
We as investors should not look from the angle of GOSL… some commentator try to accuse of negative comments. It’s not about negative comments. It’s a possibility which we should discuss and understand.
If you talk to investors, first question they ask about Reviving Under performing Enterprises bill. It’s not only Sri Lanka, world many countries with similar prospects.
I also do not think that your comment is a negative one.But no one can disagree that image about our country in your living area is clearly an exaggeration mainly done by so called independent media.As a Sri Lankan living in abroad you could try to correct that image but when doing so you should know that person who is truely sleeping can be awaken while who is pretending can not be.

Yes in a sense these are the same issues.....
Then what is that sense ? The methods used by western gang to accuse the independent countries governed by western gang unfriendly governments.

The govt invite embargoes and sanctions for existence
If there is any such thing govt will market it saying " International Coup"

Good slogan for "DESHAPREMIS" like .......... in this forum

This Govt do not believe "Prevention is Better than CURE"

This govt slogan is " Nothing like Inviting Troubles"

I think Sanction is entirely depend on the Geo political interest.. It is depend on how we deal with China ,India and West..especially China.

Currently China access to Indian ocean (oil rich countries in the middle east and Africa) through the Malacca strait, which is surrounded by US friendly countries. Therefore China is building a ground supply route through Myanmar (Obama came to Myanmar recently Very Happy ..how important Myanmar to US). They have built several ports in this route H tota is one them. These ports are known as Perls of Indian ocean are considered as security threats by India and US..

United Nations / United States embargoes and sanctions - Page 2 800px-10

UN actions

We have unsettle issues related to HR and Tamils in the country and there is strong lobbying by the Tamil diaspora in the world than SL gov.This issue is concern for India also. Now there is suggestion by some parties to hold UN mediated referendum in the North and East.. Mad

All investments and Future will depend on how intelligent we are... how we can settle these issues. our internal problems can be fuel to outsiders (not Tamils) to justify their actions..

Anyway I believe there wont be significant impact to investment in near future..

Some time govt might play the card well as mentioned by Hanoifortune .I agree

Why Govt can't use that effort for development work.?

Do you think creating problem and solving those problems is efficiency

If that is so this govt may be the most efficient govt in the world

This government has to be there for another few terms. If not them we could have lost our integrity and sovereignty. But they have a responsibility to ease the misunderstanding between communities before taking any development work.
For development with public and private sectors participation only possible. Meantime, Gov.’s Responsibility is to reduce the waste and corruption and make sure law and order are in place. These are our timely need; if there are improvements on these, there is no need others to poke their nose into our country.

Without independent judiciary how can prevent corruption ?

Govt will have to help supporters when judiciary is under the control of govt

When judiciary is independent govt can say corrupt supporters "sorry we cant help you the judiciary is independent"

Guys, having said about my long erm opinion on CSE, I am sensing that certain members and brokers are worried about March. These negative mentalities can create market dips during that time even if nothing really that bad will happen.

In summary if you are a short term player enjoy what the market is offering now. Long term look for dips to purchase more shares of strong companies.

I do not think UN will impose embargoes or sanction

But our leaders may have to face some problems when they visits western countries after passing UNCHR resolution
IF PASSED

Any way if this gov is week Majority of investors will come to the market

There may be negative and positive effects to stock market
Therefore
the Total effect will be not so bad
Nothing to worry

Today, no three states have greater importance for Sri Lanka’s future than India, China and the USA, though not in any inevitable order. What is alarming is that the Sri Lankan policy makers seem to understand none of these powers.

Reuters: China took over management on Monday of Pakistan’s Gwadar port, en route to key Hormuz Straits oil shipping lanes, in a move which has prompted nerves in India about its fellow Asian giant’s growing strategic clout.

China financed more than 80 per cent of the $ 248 million development cost of the port on the Arabian Sea, as part of a plan to open up an energy and trade corridor from the Gulf, across Pakistan to western China.
When complete, the port could be used by the Chinese Navy, analysts say, and Indian Defence Minister A.K. Antony told reporters on 6 February that Chinese control of the port was “a matter of concern”.

Indian policymakers are wary of a string of strategically-located ports being built by Chinese companies in its neighbourhood, as India beefs up its military clout to compete.

China has also funded ports in Hambantota, Sri Lanka, and Chittagong in Bangladesh, both India’s neighbours.
After a signing ceremony on Monday, Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari said he hoped Gwadar would soon be a “hub of trade and commerce in the region”.

In January, Pakistan’s cabinet approved the transfer of Gwadar port from Singapore’s PSA International to Chinese Overseas Port Holdings Limited.
