PM And High Profile Government Delegation Observe Progress Of Colombo Port City Project

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe yesterday observed the constructions of the Colombo Port City. 

He was accompanied by Megapolis and Western Province Development Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka, Finance State minister Eran Wickremaratne and Deputy Minister Harsha de Silva

"Having revoked the ‘sovereign rights’ the Chinese were given by the former regime and renegotiated the contracts the port city work is progressing well," De Silva said, after the visit.

"When one has sovereign rights over a territory it belongs to them completely; like in the case of an embassy. We also got rid of the F1 track and all the ego projects and are now creating a financial centre plus other productive entities. We also completely overhauled the environmentally sensitive dredging plans as well," the Deputy Minister also explained. 

The officials of the Chinese company handling the Port City project briefed the Sri Lankan government delegation on the progress of the construction process.
