The renovated Jetty of the Trincomalee Harbour is being inaugurated today.
The renovations were carried out by the Sri Lanka Indian Oil Corporation at the cost of 50 million rupees. This would facilitate the ships that dock at the harbour.
The Government has launched a number of harbour development programmes aiming at economic development. The Government has said that the construction of the Oluvil Harbour will be completed before the end of this year.
It will be developed as a commercial as well as a fisheries harbour. The project is being carried out in two phases. Measures have been taken to provide the necessary facilities for the families that lose land during the development process.
