Accordingly Dhammika Perera will also explore opportunities to set up a Steel based Entertainment Park similar to ArcelorMittal Orbit in London that is being built in 114.5-metre-tall (376 ft) sculpture and observation tower in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, London.
Perera is also said to be starting his Steel Venture in a Land currently owned by Hayleys Group. Perera's firms also has a major stake in Sri Lanka's Tile Industry, Aluminium Industry, Honeymoon Hotels and 6% Global Market Share in non-medical rubber glove market and accounts to over 3% of Sri Lankan Economy's Export Dollar Earnings and he contributes 5% to Sri Lankan Government's Tax Revenue via Tax Payements from his firms.
Steel is a main requirement for small homes, larger homes, religious buildings and larger infrastructure projects to everything in construction industry and the stationery industry such as staple clips and drawing pins as well as paper clips and bulldog clips.
Sri Lanka's steel industry's main market share is currently being controlled by Ceylon Steel owned by Nandana Jayadewa Lokuwithana and Currently No.1 in the industry Melwire group led MELWA owned by P.P Muruganandhan and Brothers (http://melwire.com/inspiration/) whilst other steel companies such as MELBN of Melbourne Metal (Pvt) Ltd led by Mohamed Ramzy Amanulla (http://www.melbournemetal.lk/about-us/director-message/), and importers such as Confab Steel, GTB Steel, E.B. Creasy & Co., PLC owned Lanka Special Steels Ltd. (LSSL) (http://www.lankassl.com/board-of-directors.html) and Captain Steel (Pvt) Ltd collectively have a minor market share in the country.

Sri Lankan Government Sources note that Perera in his first steel venture will create and add over 5,000 jobs to real Sri Lankans of any ethnic community, despite existing Larger steel players such as MELWA in the country has imported over 4,000 Indians already in Sri Lanka in last 15 years that resulted in providing jobs to less number of Sri Lankans.
