    welcome welcome, the more players the better it is instead of dominating by 2 players messing around, at least there wont be fraud and watered down petroleum circulating like our well know crooks do and those who hide petrol can drown in their own stocks now

    This is a viable contract, where there should be private sector participation ease the distribution of petroleum products to SriLanka.

    Just watch, none of the southern yakkos will say anything on this. If it was an Indian party, these same yakkos will ignorantly claim their security is at stake. This is why we are still pimping for the white man.

    Sri Lankans will not get competitive prices, just like now, if CEYPETCO increases, then, IOC and Synopac also increases and vice versa.

    Market will fix it! But NOT in my country!

    Australia charges 20% petroleum export

    If each company is importing their own petrol from their respective country then how come the price is same in every shed. Where is the competition that was said.
