New Year will usher in joy and prosperity - President

President Maithripala Sirisena in his New Year message says that the year 2019 should be a broad future pathway with a clear perception to achieve discipline, reconciliation and prosperity. The President wishes that 2019 will bring prosperity and joy, fulfilling the wishes of the dear people of Sri Lanka.

The message: “The dawn of the New Year is an occasion to recollect our achievements and failures as well as gains and losses in the year that ended.

“Through retrospection, a person could make the future path of life fruitful and free of malice.

 “We will be able to make our expectations a reality in the New Year if we reflect on the lessons learnt in the past years.

“Without merely being proud of our rich heritage that includes major irrigational achievements of miraculous magnitude, we should take our irrigational civilization to a new meaningful height.

“As the poet T.S. Eliot said, “For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice.”

“This is a historically decisive time that provides us an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and to take the correct path towards progress.

“This is a time to win all those challenges as a person and as a nation.

“The Year 2019 should be a broad future pathway with a clear perception to achieve discipline, reconciliation and prosperity. I wish that the New Year that dawns will bring forth prosperity and joy, fulfilling all wishes of the dear people of Sri Lanka”.
