Volumes at the Colombo port have been impacted by the slowdown in both regional and global trade, however the Central Bank is optimistic 2013 will see an improvement.

Performance of port activities remained moderate during the first eight months of 2012 owing to the slowdown in global trade, particularly the slower growth in countries in the region.

The Central Bank said that total container handling at the port of Colombo is expected to grow by 3.5 per cent in 2013, while cargo handling is expected to grow by 6.5 per cent.
