Plans to upgrade Hambantota Port

Measures had been taken to make the Hambantota Port an internationally-recognised port, Hambantota International Port Services Company CEO Captain Captain Ravindra Jayawickrama said.

He was addressing journalists during a recent press briefing held at the port’s administration complex. The Hambantota Port was located in a busy naval route that over 100 ships use daily, he said, and added that during the first half of the year, 146 ships had arrived at the port.

Over 106,135 vehicles had been shipped during that period, he added. Jayawickrama said that an agreement had been signed with the China Merchants Port for the planned development projects.
