Plans to increase business activity in Trinco Port

Plans will be drawn to increase business activity in the Trincomalee Port, Minister of Roads and Highways, Ports and Shipping, Johnston Fernando said at a meeting of high officials of the Ports Ministry.

Japan is funding a project valued at Yen 1 billion to develop the Port and about 95% of the work has been completed. The Port is now capable of night time operations. The Port is being used by three major companies and it usually handles cement and clinker.

But recently windmills were unloaded at the Port for a project to be implemented in Puttalam.

The Minister said that if the Port is operated at full capacity, the profits generated could be used to build another terminal.
