The Sri Lankans can be proud of their country as it has been voted Best Country in the World last night (Tuesday August, 4) during the annual WCA ceremony. The Sri Lankan people were also voted Nicest people on the planet.
More than a hundred prizes have been awarded during the 2020 World Countries Awards, the most prestigious international award ceremony in the world. A night to remember for the people of Sri Lanka as they swept nearly all the awards available.
Historic Win For Sri Lanka
The Sri Lankan team could hardly hide its excitement as the celebrations went on. “Are we surprised? Not really”, Sri Lankan Team leader told the journalist, speaking just after receiving the award for Most Humble People In The World.
It turns out that due to a tiny logistical concern, only votes from the Sri Lankan judges has been counted. However, Sri Lankan organizers emphasized that the issue could not have had any impact on the final outcome.
