The delayed Colombo Port City project, a plan to create a South Asian financial hub, has been given the green light, the Sri Lankan ambassador to China confirmed, according to the China Daily.

The $1.4 billion urban complex project will cover 233 hectares adjoining the Port of Colombo. The deal was signed between the Sri Lankan government and the China Communications Construction Co in November 2013.

“We feel Colombo is ideal for a South Asian financial hub,” Ambassador Karunasena Kodituwakku said in an interview with China Daily.

The location of the project will help connect businesses from India, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Singapore and the Middle East, he said.

The Colombo Port City is one of China’s key projects along the 21st Maritime Silk Road. “The most important South Asian port” under the initiative “will be a port in Colombo or another port in Sri Lanka”, said the ambassador.

Colombo Port City will become “a high-end urban complex in South Asia concentrating industries, including finance, tourism, logistics and information technology”, and the whole project will create more than 80,000 jobs, according to the Chinese Embassy to Sri Lanka.
