    Little do these sightseers realize they and their future generations will be paying for this.

    Still SL is regarded as a third world under developed country because of the low income status and debt we have incurred. A stupid port will not solve the prob when more than 80% of country is living under the poverty line.

    Sorry man. WE wont gain any thing from this port for the next 30 years.

    Well whatever is new is good but it cannot surpass the Jaya container terminal built about few decades ago. Further whatever is earned through this port will be spent to maintain Hambantota port.
