We in Sri Lanka sometimes complaint that we cannot grow since we don't have natural resources, mainly oil. Comparing to UAE, SL has a far better landscape but still we are way behind in development or as a tourist destination. IMO, we as a country don't have a vision what it will look like in, say, 10 years; the government is not committed to have such a vision.
Why is that brain drain is so common in SL? I have many educated friends who have migrated to different countries..it's true we get foreign currency but the damage caused by that is far greater; the government does not have a plan to retain educated people in the country.
It is time we as a country realize these weaknesses and have an action plan to overcome them.
(I am no expert to comment on the economy; this is what I feel about it).
