Treasury issues letters confirming bills due from Sri Lanka’s government to contractors

Author LBO
Posted on July 14, 2020 | Companies, Economy, Lead Story

Jul 14, 2020 (LBO) – Sri Lanka’s Treasury has commenced issuing confirmation letters verifying the bills due from the government to contractors and suppliers including for those in the construction sector.

Under this program, these letters will be issued in respect of the arrears for the years 2019 and 2020 reported on 31st May 2020, the Finance Ministry said.

These letters will be issued only to a licensed commercial bank nominated by the relevant contractor and a special account will have to be opened in the name of the contractor to pay the relevant arrears.

Accordingly, bills will be settled by the relevant ministry only through this special bank account in the name of the contractor.

Sri Lanka will ban foreign contractors from competing for state project and give a slew of benefits for domestic construction companies, a government policy for for the next five years said.
Construction
Sri Lanka will “all state construction work for the domestic
construction firms” the policy document said.

The reduced competition could push up profits of construction firms and raise the cost of state procurement costs overall, analysts say.
Sri Lanka’s new administration had already halved income taxes for construction firms from 28 to 14 percent and also lifted value added tax from aparment and housing projects.
It is not clear how the ban will affect foreign tied funding projects.
Chinese projects in particular are funded with export-import bank financing for China-based contractors.
Some Sri Lankan firms which were sub-contractors to Chinese firms have got involved in joint ventures.
Small and medium subcontracting firms will be provided secure business through legislation, the new policy said.
Building construction approvals will be reduced to 3 weeks, by establishing a system that will enable all approvals to be obtained through one place over the internet, while urban construction will have to follow existing urban development plans.

Past loans taken by construction firms will be given grace periods and space to renegotiate, new policies showed.
A new system will be set up to manage relations between construction firms and banks via the central bank as well.
Existing licensing for procuring raw material for construction will be revised.
The government will set up an advisory committee of engineers and technologists to help construction firms obtain consultancy assistance, while also helping foster collaboration among the industry, architects association, Institute of Engineers and universities.
Housing
The government policy document envisions providing houses to those in need through easy payment plans based on household income.
Land for housing will be provided at reasonable prices for construction companies.
The price of land, especially in Colombo, has priced out housing for many, although housing costs also higher due to protectionist import tariffs on construction material such as aluminium, steel and ceramics.
Special housing projects will be initiated islandwide under a public-private partnership program, while housing schemes will be set up in rural agriculture areas where land for housing is limited.
Housing will be provided for those who are serving or have served in armed forces and war widows, police officers, displaced persons and those living in shanties.
Banks and private institutions providing loans exclusively for housing will be merged into one Housing Bank, which will provide low interest loans.

Only media has exposed him as a leader but in reality he is not suitable for president. Even he does not know the basics of Srilankan constitution. He is good at doing other things (unlawful matters), like he did in the past for MR. Very Happy

ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka’s construction industry is expected to do well in the next few years given increasing homeownership affordability, big government infrastructure projects and rising demand for high-rises, stock brokers First Capital Equities said.

Growth in the sector slowed down in 2015 after the new government halted some big infrastructure projects, pending reviews of their costs and environmental impact. 

“Infrastructure being one the main driving forces of the construction sector, suffered a hefty blow amidst slowdown in the infrastructure drive during 2015,” the brokers said in a research report on the construction sector. 

But the brokers said they expect “a booming construction sector over next 2-3 years supported by rising affordability for housing, demand for skyscrapers and the government’s mega infrastructure drive.” 

The report said the listed Construction & Building Material Sector on the Colombo bourse is expected to provide 46% average return (annualized 29%) over an 18-month period, well above the expected market return. 

First Capital Equities said middle income affordability will be one of the drivers of construction through the housing market.

“Higher affordability coupled with the prevailing lower interest rate regime and accelerating urbanization has increased demand for housing and apartments, driving the construction sector,” they said.

Skyscraper construction will continue to dominate in the tourism and office space sector.

“With the prevailing high tourist arrival figures converting into new hotels, supplementary establishments and shopping malls, skyscraper construction is expected to continue at a similar pace to the last 5 years,” the report said. 

“The shortage in office space is also likely to add to the future demand for more skyscrapers over the next 5 years.”

The report also said the new government’s USD 40 billion Western Region Megapolis project will provide a huge boost to the overall construction sector.

(COLOMBO, Sept 29, 2016)
