* Japan assists to increase dredging capacity of Sri Lanka fishery harbors
Wed, Jan 16, 2013, 01:55 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 16, Colombo: The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) under its Japanese Grant Aid Scheme has agreed to grant a dredger to Sri Lanka to increase the dredging capacity at the state-run fishery harbors.

On a request from the Sri Lankan government JICA study team has conducted a survey on the maintenance dredging at the fishery harbors of the Ceylon Fishery Harbor Corporation (CFHC) in the country and found that the existing maintenance dredging capacity is insufficient.

The team has proposed adding a new dredging machine with annual dredging capacity of 63,000 cubic meters to the existing fleet.

JICA has agreed to provide a Grab Hopper Dredger Machine designed for the required capacity. JICA would provide the dredger to the CFHC after gaining approval from government of Japan.

The government and JICA today signed the Minutes of Discussion for the dredger in the presence of Fisheries Minister Rajitha Senaratne, Secretary Damitha De Zoysa, Chairman CFHC Upali Liyanage, General Manager G P Abeysekera and JICA Chief Representative Harumi Ao.
