Environmental organizations states that the government should take measures to permanently stop the Colombo Port City project instead of temporary suspension.

Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Ajith P. Perera told our news team that the cabinet has decided to temporarily suspend the Colombo Port City project.

Colombo Port City Project commenced during the previous regime under Chinese government aid.

However, environmental organizations and certain political parties protested against the initiative stating that the project would cause harm to the environment.

Meanwhile, several environmental organizations and civil organizations staged a joint demonstration against the project on the 3rd of this month.

National Coordinator of the Centre for Environment and Nature Studies Ravindra Kariyawasam told our news team that they will take legal action against this project.
