China assures to set up refinery in Sri Lanka



Chinese Ambassador Qi Zhenhong said that a refinery with state-of-the-art technology capable of refining four tons of crude oil per day will be established in Sri Lanka as a Chinese investment.

The Chinese Ambassador said this when he called on Asgiri Mahanayaka Most Venerable Warakagoda Sri Gnanarathana Thera and Malwathu Mahanayaka Thibbatuwawe Sri Siddhartha Sumangala Thera yesterday (27).

The Ambassador said that the existing crude oil refinery in Sri Lanka was built in the sixties and the new refinery will revolutionize the fuel distribution sector in Sri Lanka.

He also said that China has planned to open 150 filling stations in Sri Lanka soon.
