When looking at urban Colombo, we are hoping to establish three municipalities. One will be the Port City island from Mutwal, Colombo to Wellawatte – and this isn’t the Port City which is being constructed by a Chinese company, it is a very much broader Port City or industrial city which will be constructed in the mentioned area which will create hundreds and thousands of jobs.

In Katunayake we hope to construct an aviation city, and this city will be a large scale city which will attract both local and international trade. Then we hope to construct an technological city from Malabe to Homagama along the outer circular highway.
