    The women go overseas because of poverty and nothing else. instead of allocating defence budgets in the millions divert most of it and the issue might solve itself.

    this is probably gonna create more poverty and less foreign currency!

    TC,

    This is his final tactic to get more income tax money (for his own benefits).

    If Sri Lankans leave Sri Lanka, there is less tax money for them, the Rajapakse regime.

    Voodoo,

    You remind me someone...who couldnt do a proper copy and paste !

    Good initiative. Hope it can be implemented in reality and send trained staff abroad than letting Saudi oil barons abuse Sri Lankan women.

    Excellent step if Job Agency`s not misuse it.

    Preventing Maids overseas will make a effective impact to wards social problems raising in some Families.

    With enough jobs around Lankans expect extra earnings from overseas jobs,which they learn after going through many losses financially and socially.

    Yes. Arabs who want to get serviced will get admitted in hospitals to have some entertainment and they pay good money.

    Someone must have told MR all about it. Thus the new ruling.

    Get ready gals........sugar daddy is on the prowl.

    This is great. The government should provide the necessary training and send the skilled workers abroad.
