Work on Chinese funded Colombo Port City recommenced after a prolonged pause since the outbreak of COVID-19. A media visit was organized to the artificially filled land yesterday, where media personnel were shown how the work is progressing. Workers at the construction site are made to follow health guidelines. Accordingly, each worker is subjected to two PCR tests before they enter into the premises. They are kept in hostels and are taken in after the test results are confirmed. Pix by Pradeep Pathirana
Singapore has no natural beauty and Dubai was a sterile desert land. Then what attracted investors to theses two places, it was the concentration of tall buildings. So we are in the right track in addition to possessing the world beating natural beauty in terms of beaches and misty mountains.

Chinese colony. Our short sighted self serving so called thief’s will never care about my motherland but would be just wearing a Satakaya to keep fooling uneducated.

lol.. yes the "long sighted" unp leaders wanted a us and british colony again, because they cared about the motherland right?
learn the difference between a colony which the british had, and a foreign investment which every country has.

Only Sri Lankan villagers think this as development. We are being trapped in a huge debt by Chinese. Later when they complete these projects, politicians and the henchmen will achieve their monetary goals and the country will mourn to find money to pay the loans with interest. Only way out is to handover the land and buildings to them. The bogus patriotism will come at that time and we will see monks and priest(paid) on the road protesting. They will surely create internal conflicts through their spy agencies in order to make sure that we have no other option.

So DM as a responsible newspaper do not care about the country getting to a debt trap? Shame on you, sucking up to the family. As usual comments against the family are barred, only mild dissent is tolerated from citizen, what kind of people are these, no words. Hope you sleep well at night, knowing your children will be having a worse life than you and me.
