Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe, fulfilling a promise made during the recent Local Government elections, undertook an inspection tour of Oluvil Harbour yesterday.

During the Prime Minister’s tour, a lot of attention was paid to operating Oluvil Harbour as a commercially profitable port. The Prime Minister reviewed the future measures need to be taken to modernise the port by deepening certain areas of the harbour and to develop the tourism industry in the vicinity of the harbour.

It was also decided to appoint an inter-ministerial committee to formulate plans to streamline the operations of the Oluvil Harbour and submit the observations to the Cabinet.

Following the tour of the harbour, the Prime Minister attended a discussion with several citizen groups in the Ampara area on a request made by them.
