Sri Lanka is emerging as a high value destination both for foreign investment boosting the economy, and for tourists,” Horton Square Pte Ltd. Chief Executive Officer Paul Kelly said.

 “Horton Square represents the full confidence that we and our partners have in the potential for Sri Lanka and I have no doubt that we will lead the way for international investors to follow suit,” he added.

“In addition to the strength of our combined skill sets, the contribution and professionalism displayed by the ministry for Sri Lanka tourism for Horton Square has been highly commendable.

“The project itself represents a vote of confidence in Sri Lanka’s construction industry, the development of a megalopolis and the growth of tourism. It represents a symbol of confidence in Sri Lanka and other international investors will surely follow,” said Kelly.

The construction of the project is handled by Zhongtian Construction which is a subsidiary of Zhongtian Development Holding Group Ltd. The firm is an infrastructure development company which has undertaken projects in China and other Asian countries.
