An agreement for Mattala airport too

An agreement will be reached for the loss-incurring Mattala Airport before the end of this year, said prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

He was speaking to the media at the Central Bank today (28), where it was announced that the agreement to lease out Hambantota port to China Merchant Holdings will take place tomorrow (29) at the Port and Shipping Ministry.

The PM said this handover will help ease the country’s debt burden.
