Sri Lanka: National Port Master Plan Technical Assistance Rated Successful

23 July 2021

The Asian Development Bank’s Independent Evaluation rated the Sri Lanka: National Port Master Plan technical assistance “successful” in their overall assessment. This policy and advisory technical assistance was initiated to support the Government of Sri Lanka in developing the National Port Master Plan and restructuring the Sri Lanka Ports Authority. It identified priority projects that would contribute to scaling up future ADB interventions.

Maritime transport is essential to Sri Lanka’s connectivity as an island nation. The country plays a significant role as a regional transport hub due to its strategic location in the vicinity of major international shipping routes. Ports and shipping play an important role to the country’s ties to other SASEC member countries and the rest of the world.
