Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA) is the state-owned operator of major commercial ports in Sri Lanka. Founded in 1979, SLPA currently operates ports in Colombo, Galle, Hambantota, Kankesanthurai, Oluvil, Point Pedro and Trincomalee.[2] As of 31 March 2013 SLPA had a 3% stake in Colombo Dockyard.[3]

History[edit]

The Sri Lanka Ports Authority Act No. 51 of 1979 established the SLPA by amalgamating Colombo Port Commission, Port (Cargo) Corporation and Port Tally and Protective Services Corporation.[4][5] The purpose of SLPA was to develop, maintain, operate and provide port and other services in the ports of Colombo, Galle, Trincomalee and other "specified ports".[6]
