Looking forward to see the call of President on government to conbat corruption. Annual budget for country development is so so big in a such a tiny country, but little reaches people in the village. Inproperly expenture or corruption increases gap between rich and poor. So it is good to hear that President pays attention on this issue. We hope that government can realise this call.
