Chinese Company Summoned

The Chinese company handling the Colombo Port City Project construction has been summoned before the special ‘Port City Investigation Committee’ next week.

The committee has informed the construction company to furnish all documentations issued by the government related to the project, and the project report of the construction company – the China Communications Construction Company Limited (CCCC).

The project manager of the Port City Project Chandana Gunawardena said that due to the suspension of construction, around 250 metres of the breakwater had washed away to sea and the company was losing about Rs. 3.80-5 million daily.

While about 13% of the construction has been completed so far, the company is losing heavily, as they have to pay the rent on three ships that had been taken on rent for construction purposes.

Gunawardena also pointed out that if the project recommences without delay, direct employment of the 1000 workers as well as the 5000 strong indirect work force benefit. Due to the suspension of work they become jobless.
