OIL TANKS FARM - LEASE TEN TO INDIA! -Offer the rest by International Tender.
By Prof. Hudson Mclean


As expressed in my earlier article, Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) should not try to be too clever but LEASE TEN TANKS TO INDIA, and the Government of India should be responsible for maintenance and security.

This is a good start. This is the first line of defence without exercising any offensive tactics. Purely a commercial move exercised by Sovereign right. Thereafter, CPC should invite offers through tender to foreign governments, usage both for commercial and military purpose.

Trincomalee should be promoted as a FREE PORT and parts of the North East should be offered on a ten (10) year lease to foreign governments as an investment zone. In order to maintain the neutrality of Sri Lanka, a government should establish an entity similar to that of Singapore Economic Development Board (SEDB) or better still, invite the SEDB to run the operation as a franchise.(The LankaWeb-04/04/02)
