START MEMO NOMINATING-JUSTIFICATION:
As the head of the Communications Unit for the Peace
Secretariat of Sri Lanka, Miss Jayasuriya holds an

SIPDIS
important position that will be critical to the
Secretariat's ability to gain and maintain public

SIPDIS
confidence. She would be charged with the preparation
of a coherent communication strategy for the Sri Lankan
Government in relation to the peace process. An IV
program that will give her wider exposure to U.S.
organizations working on public information campaigns
would strengthen her public communication skills and
further Sri Lanka's peace efforts. This would enable
her to work out an effective strategy to educate and
inform the people of Sri Lanka and other stakeholders
on the complexity and problems likely to be faced
during the peace process.
