The Government Medical Officers’ Association says the reason for the current coconut oil controversy is the actions of persons focused on financial benefits.

President of the GMOA Dr. Anuruddha Padeniya speaking at an event in Colombo today said a majority of people think the country is beneficial due to the availability of naval, air and trade routes.

He noted a South American Head of State recently said the world map needs to be looked at upside down, to understand why Sri Lanka faces many issues, as the whole world hangs from it.

Dr. Padeniya added the country’s geographical location is very significant.

He stated the Lord Buddha has also preached that spiritual and economic balance is necessary for victory.
