AtchchuveliFull

The Achchuveli Industrial Complex in the Jaffna Peninsula was declared open last week under the Uthuru Wasanthaya (“Northern Spring”) Programme.

“Achchuveli industrial area was destroyed by the terrorists 25 years ago, but President Rajapaksa’s ‘Mahinda Chinthana – The Way Forward’ and ‘Uthuru Wasanthaya’ rebuilt it,” said Governor of the Northern Province Maj. Gen. (Retd) G.A. Chandrasiri.

The entire park extends over a total area of 65 acres and is being developed in two stages. The first stage consisted of the development of 25 acres at a cost of Rs. 300 million. Of this amount, the Sri Lankan Government contributed Rs. 50 million while the Indian Government provided the remaining Rs.250 million for infrastructure development within the industrial zone.

The development of this industrial park in Jaffna is expected to provide direct and indirect employment to more than 10,000 people in the region. More than eight companies have already commenced construction of factories during the first phase of the project.

“Small entrepreneurs also will be highly benefited from such (an) industrial zone,” Governor Chandrasiri said. “Other industrial zones have been already established in areas such as Jaffna, Mannar, Kilinochchi and Vavuniya. The construction of another zone in Mullaitivu is currently in progress.”

The Sri Lankan Government provided basic facilities to the industrial park, including electricity, widened roads, pipe-borne water, a drainage system and a waste water treatment plant.

US seeks to eventually partition Sri Lanka – Tamara Kunanayakam

The United States has no genuine interest in accountability or reconciliation in Sri Lanka, but is seeking a strategic military base in Asia, says Tamara Manimekhalai Kunanayakam, onetime Sri Lanka’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Office at Geneva and Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to Holy See.

In a wide ranging interview with Ceylon Today, Kunanayakam said, the US would demand more concessions using the resolution as a tool and charged the UN Rights Chief as a ‘US instrument’ doing Washington’s bidding.

Kunanayakam also alleged the resolution was aimed at demonstrating Sri Lanka’s alleged failure to demonstrate accountability and to showcase the island as a failed State to maximize on concessions, including a demand to create a US military hub in Sri Lanka.
