drwijyaddasaWe all are aware that the Central Cultural Fund make a significant contribution to reveal the glorious ancient heritage of Sri Lanka to the world and to conserve and preserve it for the future generations.

The people all over the world have a very favourable opinion about the importance of the economic, social and cultural life of the Sri Lankan. The attempt that the Central Cultural Fund takes to conserve and preserve the monuments of archeological and religious value belong to the Buddhist, Hindu, Catholic and Islamic communities in the country without difference, strengthen that favorable world opinion.

Due to the Internet the world has become a global village. The use of the modern technology for information communication is a requirement of national importance.

Hence, the establishing a website by the Central Cultural Fund should be regarded as an appropriate venture. I sincerely hope that it will fulfill the need of information seeking people of the world.
