Local Govt. committed to making SL a global maritime hub - PM

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa says the government is committed to making Sri Lanka a sustainable global maritime hub in the region.

Delivering the keynote address virtually at the World Oceans Summit Asia-Pacific yesterday (07), the PM said Sri Lanka, as an island nation in the Indian Ocean, has a great responsibility to respect its people and the Indian Ocean.

The regionally-focused World Ocean Summit Asia-Pacific virtual event under the theme “Investing in a blue economy” is being held from 6 to 10 December.

The Prime Minister said as research and development require significant financial and human resources, developed countries armed with sustainable maritime technology and knowledge are invited to assist developing island nations in improving maritime well-being and enhancing marine biodiversity.
