Chinese loans debt equity transfer in accordance with talks in Beijing

dc79a52d0c472be3b258a881751f34a7 LThe debt equity transfer on the Chinese loans will be implemented in accordance with the discussions Prime Minister of Sri Lanka had in Beijing with the President of the Peoples Republic of China His Excellency Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Li Keqiang on 7thand 8th April 2016.
In accordance with the discussion, in the first instance the Chinese Government will promote Chinese firms interested in entering to Private-Public Partnership with Sri Lanka Government in regard to the specified project. The Cabinet Committee on Economic Management (CCEM) has instructed Minister of Development Strategies and International Trade and Minister of Special Assignments to discuss the required modalities with the Chinese Ambassador and to report back to the CCEM. The discussions have been finalised and report to be submitted.

Following these discussions, on Friday 29th July 2016, a meeting was held in Hambantota by the two Ministers with the Chinese Ambassador and interested Chinese firms on the proposals for MattalaAirport, Hambantota Port, Tourism Zone, a Petroleum Refinery, a dockyard, a LNG Power Plant and Industrial Parks. These will come under the Public Private Partnership between Sri Lanka Government Agencies and Chinese Investors.  Furthermore, the Ministry of Development Strategies & International Trade is discussing other investment proposals in regard to Hambantota with foreign investors of other nationalities.  This includes a second Petroleum Refinery.  

A part of the English print media have distorted the facts in regard to these transactions in order to disrupt the economic development of Sri Lanka. The discussion alleged to have taken between the Prime Minister Hon. RanilWickremesinghe and the Chinese Ambassador as stated in the Sunday Times titled “H’tota and Mattala : China declines Lanka’s request” is false. This paper together with the Financial Times are leading the campaign of dis-information.
