Architects help Sri Lanka become the Wonder of Asia

"Architects and politicians play a similar role. Good products will receive appreciation and inferior ones will receive bad marks", said Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa addressing the inauguration of "Architect 2011" at BMICH last Wednesday.

The Minister assured on behalf of the Government that no room will be left to cause damage to the profession of architecture. The architects are with us to achieve the goal of making Sri Lanka Wonder of Asia, the Minister said. He said that the development of the country depends on the progress in investment and tourism. The environment should be protected to attract tourists.

Our country is gifted with beautiful waterfalls, wildlife and biodiversity.

Those valuable resources must be protected. Beautiful hotels, bathrooms and toilets can be constructed everywhere in the world but it is not so natural resources. Architects extended their help and advice in the development process of Hambantota after the tsunami.

They also extended volunteer assistance in the rebuilding process.

When the first IDP camp was set up it was located on a wrong site.

The architects extended support to set it up in a proper location.

This has become one of the best IDP camps in the world, Minister Basil Rajapaksa added.
