Special committee for Hambanthotaport issue - Ravi Karunananayake

Meanwhile refuting the allegations selling off the Hambantotaport to a foreign company, Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake has insisted that it is only a Public Private Partnership between the Ports Authority and the Chinese Company to develop the and maintain the port.

The government has already appointed a special committee to overlook the matter in which the finance minister is also a member. Pointing out that the committee would study the matter deeply, the finance minister said that the amended contract agreement, which would be more favorable towards Sri Lanka, will be produced in the oncoming 2,3 weeks.

Claiming that at present the Hambantota port is running on massive losses, the Minister accused the Opposition for disturbing the government's attempt to develop the harbor and generate more jobs for the people.
