The final day conference of the fourth Interact conference commenced with The President of the Trincomalee Rotary Club, Mr.R.Thirukumaranathan, as the chief guest, and the Club's Secretary, Mr.S.Jeyashankar, as the guest of honour.

Mr.Jeyshankar said that due to lack of better understanding between various communities, the progress of the country had been set back.

Mr.Thirukumaranathan said in his speech that this year's Rotary motto is "sow the seeds of love." The next year's theme will be "lend a hand with love". "We must serve the people with love."

The Rotary Movement has established Interact clubs as its student wing below eighteen years of age. The aim is to instill in the minds of younger generation the urgent need of the leadership quality and to prepare them to face the challenges ahead when they become future leaders, the former President of the Trincomalee Rotary Club, Mr.P.Thirumugam, said.
