During the address after receiving the honor, Dr. Mendis spoke about “Vision for World Peace” to a select audience including Diplomatic Corps and media, amongst others. Most of the invitees including the Most Reverend Park Seung-UK stated that since a large number of mega corporates and chaebols are located in the City of Ulsan, which is one of the largest industrial cities in the country, many companies such as Hyundai, LG, SK and Samsung would be quite keen and interested to be commercially and economically engaged with Sri Lanka. This was stated by most of the corporate leaders and invitees after Dr. Mendis explained the investment and economic endowments and facilities of the country as the country is on an upward economic trajectory.
