Minister of Investment Promotion Lakshman Yapa Abeywardene notes that Australian investor James Packer continues to remain eager about investing in Sri Lanka.

A number of forces opposed investment projects by James Packer, as they believe that these projects would bring in casinos into the country.

Minister Abeywardene expressed these views;  “He is eager to commence his projects in our country. Within the next four years, there will be a hotel that will be  built. This government listens to the views of all parties. The public or the Maha Sanga have a right to express their concerns if they have any. We have consulted will all of them when undertaking activities. We hope to carry out this hotel project in a manner which does not raise any concerns.”
