Insights Into Port Development 2014 & Beyond Set for January 16
The Shippers’ Academy Colombo (SAC) scheduled an interactive forum with Dr Priyath Bandu Wickrama (Insights Into Port Development 2014 & Beyond), Chairman of the Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA) on January 16 to educate the investor community and the industry on the development projects and discuss the plan of the SLPA beyond 2014.
Among the key issues that will be presented would be the Colombo Port City development project, which covers 565 acres of reclaimed land in front of the new south harbor, where investments are expected to be over USD 15 billion in the coming decade.
The project is set to transform the landscape of the city of Colombo and is considered to be South Asia’s most modern metropolis and the logistics and commercial hub.
