Avurudu Ulela at Hambantota International Port

Fasmin Jayah, Accounts Assistant and Henry Liu, Executive, Commercial and Marketing of Hambantota International Port Group (HIPG) were judged Avurudu Kumari and Avurudu Kumaraya at the Sinhala and Tamil new year festivities at the port this year.

The Hambantota International Port (HIP) Avurudu celebrations were held in traditional style, at the port premises with all Sri Lankan and Chinese staff members participating. The event named ‘Nav Thote Avurudu Ulela’ was filled with all the usual New Year activities and a grand dinner for all stakeholders providing services to the port followed. The festivities ended with a colourful fireworks display during which the company distributed ice-cream to the surrounding community.

“It was heartening to see all our employees come together to celebrate this important occasion after a four-year hiatus.  We could not hold the event because of the various security and health-related risks in the country. As a company that respects local culture, celebrating the Sinhala and Tamil New Year is a key employee engagement event on our calendar. I am pleased to note that this year’s celebrations were conducted with utmost dedication, showcasing Sri Lankan traditional customs, and arranging various traditional new year games, which were enjoyed by everyone,” says Johnson Liu, CEO of HIPG.
