However, the President emphasized that he would never allow any profit-making state institutions to be sold.  The President was addressing the opening ceremony of a new warehouse at the Port of Colombo today (10).

He stated that the government has received an income of Rs 40 billion from the Colombo Port last year and that he hopes to see this progress even more in the future.
