Difficulties in finding an appropriate place had delayed the proposed Nuwara Eliya Air Port project, President Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday said.
“We are still on the look out for a proper place to start the project,” President said at a ceremony held in Nuwara Eliya. The ceremony was held to commence the second phase of Nuwara Eliya Gregory Lake garden.
Speaking about the Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport (MRIA) the President said it would be advantageous for the future generation.
“We are working for the future of the country. It may be true that we are not receiving benefits of MRIA and Hambantota Port today. But we will benefit from them in near future,” he said.
