My goal is to realize the potential and opportunities we have and manage our challenges to the best to make this port the best in the world


As a country, Sri Lanka has a huge capacity and in the maritime sphere the companies and government institutions work towards a common goal in a unified effort with an iota of competition which I perceive as being healthy.
