The public welcomes the decisions taken by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa during his first ten days in office. The President’s Media Division says the decisions commended include a halt to the importation of small export crops, the reduction in the Value Added Tax and the tax on telephone charges and the elimination of the monopoly on wheat flour. Also commended are the recommendations being sought for appointments to high positions, restricting the cabinet to 16 members, tasking the armed forces with maintaining law and order and downsizing the presidential staff and escort staff. His decision to stay in his private residence and inviting powerful nations to invest in Sri Lanka while respecting her identity have also come in for praise by the public.
