India financially assists Sri Lanka in biggest Harbour

The Indian government has agreed to provide financial assistance to develop Kankasanthurai (KKS) Harbour in two phases. The KKS harbour is one of the 10 sea and air entry points to the country.

The harbour's development will enable economic and social development of the war-torn North.

 It is thought that development of KKS harbour will facilitate the transportation of goods from nearby Indian ports.

Sri Lanka High Commission's Minister-Counsellor Sugeeswara Senadhira said the cabinet of ministers gave the green signal to the KKS Harbour Development Project last week.

"A memorandum of understanding with the Indian government to carry out the development of the port is to be signed shortly," Senadhira said.
