A prosperous future is assured for the Eastern polity. All arrangements are in place for the opening of the Valachchenai Fisheries Harbour.
The Harbour has been modernized with the intention of upgrading civilian life that was paralysed and inheriting the genuine dividends of peace and development which is being witnessed following the end of terrorism. The Lanka Fisheries Harbour Corporation said that the opening of the Valachchenai Fisheries Harbour will take place tomorrow. The Project to reconstruct the Harbour took place under the North East Coastal Programme. The Corporation handled the construction of the infrastructure. The total expenditure incurred was nearly 371 million rupees.
In addition to grants from the Sri Lankan Government, the Asian Development Bank also provided financial assistance. The Harbour was ravaged by the LTTE terrorists. The fish that will be unloaded at this Harbour is expected to reach the market very soon. The Harbour will also be a solution for owners of trawlers who faced immense hardships due to the lack of a Harbour from Kirinde in the South up to Trincomalee.
