Due to 30 years of war, Sri Lanka’s image overseas was stained with terrorism, violence and bloodshed.   In order to put this gloomy past behind and move forward to a peaceful future, the country needed to build a positive image internationally in the aftermath of the war. MSL identified that opinion leaders with international links would be the best suited Sri Lankans to undertake this task.  Hence, MSL invited over 100 well-known personalities in the country, basically the ‘Who’s Who” of Colombo to be recognized as Mother Sri Lanka Ambassadors.  Their task was to help promote a positive image of the country overseas.The MSL Ambassador Programme was thus launched in 2011, where over 80 business leaders, professionals, academics, sports personalities and entertainers were inducted as MSL Ambassadors.
