SL to raise $ 8 bln by selling valuable assets
By Bandula Sirimanna
View(s):  15846


The Government is hoping to raise US$8 billion from the lease or sale of valuable public assets to bolster rapidly dwindling foreign reserves, the report of a newly-appointed economic advisory committee has revealed.
Among the main items in the list were the long term leases of Katunayake International Airport for $2 billion, Mattala Airport for $300 million and Ratmalana Airport for $400 million.
Arrangements have been made to hand over the Colombo North Port Development Project for an investment of $600 million while Colombo Port City lands will be leased out at a total of $4 billion.
Accordingly, Sri Lanka Ports Authority has planned to do a feasibility study for the Colombo North Port Development Project focused on expanding capacity of container handling while serving all other port services expected from industry.
Further shares of Sri Lanka Telecom will be sold at a price of $500 million and Sri Lanka Insurance Corporation shares for $300 million.
Divestment of non-strategic state-owned assets has been suggested as a part of the government’s multi-pronged plan in the short-term to improve their operational and financial efficiency while increasing the country’s reserves position.

SOE reforms

https://www.ft.lk/top-story/Ranil-rolls-out-reforms-and-relief-in-mini-Budget/26-739279

In terms of SOE reforms, the President proposed Rs. 200 million to establish the ‘State-Owned Enterprise Restructuring Unit’ to facilitate restructuring of Government-owned business entities. He also proposed to re-activate the Statement of Corporate Intent (SCI) process for key 50 SOEs, excluding CEB, CPC and SriLankan Airlines, as they are under different efforts to restructure, to closely monitor the set targets. SCI was a feature under the last IMF program.

The performance of State-owned commercial enterprises has not been satisfactory for a long time and some SOEs are incurring losses due to various reasons,” a statement of weekly Cabinet Decisions issued by the Government Information Department noted.

Sri Lanka can raise US$2-3bn by reducing SOEs: President

ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka plans boost central bank reserves by reducing state owned enterprises President Ranil Wickremesinghe told parliament, in a possible reference to a rivatization drive.

“By reducing the burden of SOE we can expand the reserves by getting 2 to 3 billion US dollar,” President Wickrmesinghe told parliament.

“This is the only short term way we can get a few billions of reserves in the short term.”

Sri Lanka has a series of so-called ‘low hanging fruits’ which can be sold down.

These include Sri Lanka Insurance, *residual stakes in already listed companies like Sri Lanka Telecom, and state owned hotels*. (Colombo/Oct05/2022)

It will never going to happen. They will put the burden on the private sector.
Now it is very much clear the plan A is tax the private sector as much as possible (1000 USD has to pay 30% tax) and feed the public sector.

There is a strong pro privatization sentiment even within the government, we have never seen such in the history of SL. I believe we are on the right track but we need to fasten the process.
