Rejuvenating Colombo

Today, Colombo contributes to over 50 percent of the national GDP and
has much more room to grow. The economic density of Colombo is only
approximately USD 15 million per square kilometre. In comparison to
other Asian cities this indicates the kind of growth that Colombo
should aim for especially in the current context. Thus, with three
decades of war behind it and the country at peace, it is finally
possible to realise Colombo's true potential.


Given this, the Government aims to convert Colombo to be one of the
world class cities. Therefore, under the strategic leadership of
President Mahinda Rajapaksa and the guidance of Gotabaya Rajapaksa,
Secretary to the Ministry of Defence and Urban Development the journey
of urban regeneration in Colombo has now begun, intended at greatly
enhancing the functionality and unique character of this city.
