    Can you find the proper labour force in Sri Lanka.

    Shan Monday, 24 December 2018 10:57 AM

    This cheap labour from China is because the labourers are prisoners whom they are utilizing rather than feeding free.

    Perumal Monday, 24 December 2018 07:48 AM

    Why cannot they employ Sri Lankan labour?

    Chinese build mostly useless things using material imported from China, and with Chinese labor who are fed with food imported from China. These projects contribute nothing to the local economy. At the end we Lankans have to pay for these mostly useless projects in foreign currency along with their high interest rates.

    Your comment is true, but, it is really difficult to find suitable laborers from SL.

    Kai Saksman Monday, 24 December 2018 10:50 AM

    Yep Arnold, you are more than right! Chinese won´t bring any good for Sri Lanka. They first offer financing and labor force to Sri Lanka and then the country will be in debt for decades.

    Chinese workers are more efficient than sri lankan workersThere are few lessons that we as a nation can learn from them.

    Sathya Monday, 24 December 2018 12:18 PM

    Very soon SL would face a serious crisis due to the shortage of decent workers (Labourers)
