No wonder, when the importers do not have a choice due to orders from the top.

Why all these hyundai cars are left hand drive? I thought only right hand drive cars are allowed to be imported.

There were over half a million vehicles imported to SL last year and as a result Colombo port made an Operating profit of Rs 1.20 billition (Questionablr) then GOSL imposed tax hike to cut this amount to 20% and then we are building ports around the country.

So what is the financial impact to Colombo port for 2012 year alone with Capital + interest repayments on new harbour.

Just somebody tell me
