Message from Secretary Ministry of Ports & Shipping and Southern Development

secrertaryAs the secretary of Ports & Shipping and Southern Development, I’m indeed pleased to endorse and support the first ever Colombo International Logistics Conference 2019 as a key trade facilitation
institution. Ports and shipping plays a vital role to the national economy and bares a greater responsibility as a support service for the logistics industry.

The government policy has been very clear that Sri Lanka needs to be an Indian Ocean logistics hub. In doing so, event such as these are vital to promote and uplift the country image as a major maritime and logistics hub.

I’m also pleased to note that Sri Lanka Ports Authority which is celebrating its 40 th anniversary is partnering this event, to make it a successful conference. On behalf of the Ministry of Ports & Shipping and Southern Development, I congratulate the organising committee and wish all the success with the first ever Colombo International Logistics Conference.

Admiral S. S. Ranasinghe (Rtd)
