Hawaiian Highway Captain Filipov Genchev said: “It’s a pleasure to stop by this lovely Port of Hambantota, and I wish to make this a regular call.”

Captain Filipov Genchev and Hambantota International Port Services (HIPS) CEO Ravi Jayawickrama on behalf of Hambantota International Port exchanged a welcome plaque commemorating this inaugural visit.

KLine local agent ABC Shipping Ltd. Executive Director Roshan Dissanayake and his team were also present to commemorate this maiden call ceremony.
