    I will bet 4 wheels of a VW, this plant is only a political gilmat. [That's the fact]

    I hope they bring their own generators, water supply etc., otherwise they will be stopped more than working.

    JO was telling government not even procured land. Difficult to digest.

    ANTON Tuesday, 03 January 2017 06:19 PM

    IS THIS STONE A BLOCK OF ICE CUBE....... VERY HARD..BUT......

    Nimal Tuesday, 03 January 2017 06:39 PM

    You think VW is wasting their time on our "Political Gilmart" ?

    think always don't negative

    As the name implies it is an ASSEMBLY plant. Not a VW manufacturing plant. This is similar to existing plant manufacturing Panda Geelo Rexton with imported parts from China. Minimum or No value input.

    Why aren't any German nationals participating in this ceremony.

    Anura Mendis Tuesday, 03 January 2017 08:52 PM

    So many negative comments, wonder why none of them thought of brining in investors

    Desmond Jeromme Tuesday, 03 January 2017 09:00 PM

    Good move and I appreciate very much. But at the mean time, try to get all the culprits of JO on corruption charges as you promised Mr. President

    Bubble Banda Tuesday, 03 January 2017 09:01 PM

    Yes its a good plan to slap the faces of MR

    Kiris Baba Amaray Tuesday, 03 January 2017 09:02 PM

    Trust you both will open more factories in SriLanka and give job opportunities for our un-employed talented youths.

    J Palitha Tuesday, 03 January 2017 09:06 PM

    Giant teeth (goraka) Johnston says that Volkswagen was a condemned and rejected project. Is he crazy or you all crazy.

    German Jacob Tuesday, 03 January 2017 09:58 PM

    Johnston should have been arrested long ago. Still he is out Mr. President.

    Sam Tuesday, 03 January 2017 10:26 PM

    No one from VW at the foudation stone laying. Just pulling the wool over our eyes. Any vehicle plant would be put up with direct port or highway access.

    Lal Tuesday, 03 January 2017 11:12 PM

    A giant Volkswagen logo was right behind the PM and no only a few parts will be imported. A gigantic tyre factory will soon be built by an Italian investor in Horana etc

    Kumar Wednesday, 04 January 2017 06:36 AM

    LOL! This is not a Volkswagen assembly plant, its a fake! It took 3 years to build this phony assembly plant and wont operate fully till 2020.
