A delegation from the Thai Prime Minister’s Office visited the Hambantota International Port (HIP) to explore opportunities and understand how the port operates under the public-private partnership between the government of Sri Lanka and CM Port.

The 8-member delegation included Wannaporn Niyomthong, Deputy Director from Directorate 8 of Thailand; Surapat Phosaen, Minister Counselor from the Royal Thai Embassy in New Delhi and five analysts, accompanied by Prangthip, Counsellor from the Royal Thai Embassy, Sri Lanka.

A detailed presentation covering the port’s facilities, current and potential business opportunities, and plans was made to the delegates by Senior Manager, Port Investment Services (PIS) Sabrina Edirisinghe. The presentation showcased 6 key areas HIP focuses on i.e. South Asia Energy Service Center, South Asia RORO Transfer Center, Maritime Service Center, Industrial Park, Container Transfer Center and Sri Lanka Bulk Cargo Distribution Center.

The port’s plans to commence its first phase of container operations were also discussed.

“We see this visit as a follow-up to the HIP team’s tour of the Port Authority of Thailand earlier this year. The free trade agreement Sri Lanka and Thailand are preparing to sign provides further impetus for these interactions and HIP wishes to engage with Thai businesses and investors on several levels,” says Hambantota International Port Group (HIPG) COO Tissa Wickremasinghe.

“They have shown interest in the different pillars of the port’s activities and we hope to explore mutually beneficial business and investment opportunities.”
