Shipping mafia should be ended – Marikkar

Opening up Sri Lanka’s shipping industry, which is presently the monopoly of two companies, is a must, says MP S.M. Marikkar.

He told parliament yesterday (15) that one company was owned by a minister’s relative, while the other was controlled by politicians.

Marikkar said the UNP fully supported finance minister Mangala Samaraweera’s 2018 budget proposal to introduce a port regulator.
