Government to grow 10,000 HA rubber in north-east

Sri Lanka would add 10,000 hectares of rubber plantation to the North East in three years, said Minister of Plantation Industries Mahinda Samarasinghe.

Speaking at the 95th Annual General Meeting of Colombo Rubber Traders Association at JAIC Hilton, he said that plans were mooted to complete 1,000 hectares by the end of 2013.

The Minister said that Sri Lanka producers only 2% of the World Rubber Market and the increase of production was a prerequisite to increase that percentage. “This is the reason we decided to increase production and looked at the North East to grow rubber.

He said that they are also hoping to open more rubber nurseries which would be managed by the Rubber Development Department. He said that they were also working closely with the Divi Neguma movement to increase production and their focus was more on ‘small holders.’ He also requested the private sector to set up more factories.

The minister said they were also looking at ways and means of reducing the cost of production. The Government should venture into developing new areas in the Eastern and Northern provinces where trials have been conducted and have been found to be suitable for plantation in the future, bearing in mind and considering the enormous financial expenditure outlaid by the Government on infrastructure development in those regions for the benefit of its people.

that rubber production has dropped from 158,00 tons in 2011 to 152,000 tons 2012 and declined further in 2013 to 130,800 tons, which is a loss of about 28,000 tons in just 3 years. “The price of rubber too has declined, he added.” A census of rubber lands was done after a period of 26 years in 2010. The last census was carried out in 1984. The sector includes 127,092 small holdings units and 570 estate divisions of over 15 rubber growing districts.

The aim is to encourage production of cement, iron, furniture, wire, aluminum, and tiles, sanitary fittings, lifts, timber doors. Glass, pantry cupboards, ceiling materials, building management systems, pains water pumps, hand rails and water proof materials among other material.

Outlining the progress of the BOI, he said that Sri Lanka received US$442 million in Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) during the first quarter of this year recording a 100 per cent increase compared with $219 million FDI in the same period last year. Minister Abeywardene noted that Sri Lanka will be able to achieve its $2 billion target for this year with the signing of 38 foreign investment projects during the first three months and the realizing of $1 billion from 17 identified strategic investment projects.

Sri Lankan boat building industry under BOI – A Review

Sri Lanka has a proud history of boat building. From the ancient times Sri Lanka was considered as a nation that had mastered the science of boat building and the country was a maritime hub of the ancient world.

The island therefore does have a natural advantage to become the hub for boat manufacturing in the Asian region thanks to its strategic location and other skills. According to Akihiko Nakauchi. Chairman Colombo Dockyard PLC.

He stated in news that the service provided by the Board of Investment (BOI) for this sector is excellent. Sri Lanka has one of the best natural harbours in the Asian region and its commercial port in Colombo is rated among the most economical and efficient. Which offers a comprehensive range of services to shippers.

As a result of several initiatives taken by the governments, the private sector and other stakeholders the boatbuilding industry in Sri Lanka has now become one of the leading local industries with a potential of emerging as an export sector.

The opportunities have emerged in the boatbuilding sector such as boats for excursions, for whale watching, leisure fishing, snorkelling and scuba diving. The interest of the local community in boating activities will create additional markets not only for the exiting entrepreneurs but also for the new investors in the industry.

Sri Lanka’s boatbuilding industry is roughly comprised of three main sectors namely, pleasure boats, commercial boats and fishing boats.

The BOI of Sri Lanka lias played and continues to play a leading role in order to developing this industry There are more than five big boat building companies operating with BOI status.

  • Neil Fernando and Company (Pvt.) Ltd.
  • Dhanusha Marine Lanka (Pvt.) Ltd.
  • Josten Viksund (Pvt.) Ltd.
  • Solas Marine Lanka (Pvt.) Ltd
  • Colombo Dockyard PLC

are some the companies operating under the BOI. which produce a wide range of activities such as production of small and medium size boats for the export markets, production of vessels for sport fishing and day fishing, speed boats, coast guard vessels, Dinghy, freshwater fishing boats, saltwater fishing boats, cruising boats and sailboat.

Colombo Dockyard PLC specializes in the building of anchor handling tug supply vessels, platform supply vessels, passenger vessels, harbour tug boats, landing crafts, work boats, fast patrol bats, offshore patrol boats, cargo vessels and passenger vessels for the export markets.

In addition to enhancing earnings of foreign exchange, the boat building industry itself offers a wide range of benefits to the country it has generated many job opportunities for the youth and created inflow of technical know-how into the country.

According to a new market research report titled Global Recreational Boating Industry Analysis and Forecast 2010-2015 from Lucintel. The boating industry is growing exponentially over the next five years. Sri Lankan boating industry therefore has with great potential for expansion opportunities and even of penetrating new markets.

Existing boat manufacturers can expand their production capacity to meet the growing international demand. The BOI Sri Lanka believes strongly that the boating industry is a sector which will play an important role in the country’s development.
