Sri Lanka Ports Authority

The Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA) was established to develop, maintain, operate and provide port and other services in the ports of Colombo, Galle and Trincomalee and any other port as may be declared hereafter by the minister by order. SLPA was constituted under the provisions of the Sri Lanka Ports Authority Act, No. 51 of 1979, effecting the merger of the Colombo Port Commission Department and the two existing statutory Corporations. This resulted in a unified organization with a streamlined structure. The Ports Authority does not receive financial allocations from the government but operates on its own revenue and resources.
