Over 6000 Chinese employed in Sri Lanka on projects

Over 6000 Chinese are employed in Sri Lanka on various projects, the Chinese Embassy in Colombo said.

Yang Zuoyuan, the Economic and Commercial Counselor at the Chinese Embassy in Colombo said that most Chinese are in Sri Lanka to provide technical training to the Sri Lankans involved in joint China-Sri Lanka projects.

Chinese workers are involved in the port city project in Colombo, Hambantota port project, highway projects as well as in the construction of key high-rise buildings.

Zuoyuan however noted that in the case of joint China-Sri Lanka state projects the Chinese company involved must obtain approval from Sri Lanka to recruit Chinese employees. (Colombo Gazette)
