Port City Colombo hosts exclusive networking session with Lord Marland

The Port City Colombo (PCC) on Monday hosted a special business networking session with the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council (CWEIC) Chairman Lord Marland at the Port City Colombo Sales Gallery. 

Acting as an excellent platform for PCC to present its upcoming investment prospects, this occasion showcased Lord Marland’s strong support for PCC’s investment promotion drive, through CWEIC, to attract potential investors from across the Commonwealth and beyond. State Minister of Investment Promotion Dilum S. Amunugama, was also present at the event, along with a host of other dignitaries representing state and business interests. 

During his welcome address, Lord Marland commended Sri Lanka’s resilience, enterprising nature, hospitality, and entrepreneurial spirit. Highlighting the current positive economic growth of 1.6%, he also expressed that Sri Lanka is ‘a nation on the move’, which is steadily pursuing the path of increased prosperity. He underscored PCC’s significant progress in achieving key project milestones, including the marina promenade and other signature developments set to break ground in 2024 despite the past two challenging years, whilst extending support from CWEIC to position the project as a top investment destination. ‘Port City Colombo will be a winner for those who participate in it,’ were his concluding remarks. 

Further insightful remarks were also delivered by State Minister Amunugama, Capital Maharaja Organisation Group Director Niro Cooke who accentuated the close friendship and mandate of support that Lord Marland has always provided towards the nation of Sri Lanka, as well as Colombo Port City Economic Commission Commission Member Reyaz Mihular.
