Explaining the rationale behind the new effort the Chairman S L Maritime Directory (Pvt) Ltd W.S.Weeraman who is also the Chairman of Ceylon Shipping Corporation Ltd said,”This directory is designed and built up on a scientific base which endeavors to provide all the information in maritime sector in Sri Lanka on a single platform, according to media reports..
It was identified that the information available for Sri Lankan maritime industry stake holders are confined to very conventional way of information system and as such Sri Lanka Maritime Directory has taken a major effort to reach the Foreign Service providers as well as locals to access all the information in a single platform.
It is a result of an extensive research conducted by intellectuals related to maritime field as well as other sectors. One of the objectives in this effort is to open avenues for local industries and investors to build up inter-relationship and also international relationship with their counterparts in the rest of the world as at present there is no such connectivity. We hope that Sri Lanka Maritime Directory Web Portal will meet a long felt need by providing these newest ways of information- sharing system”, the Chairman said.The Directory will be updated periodically to ensure access to the latest information.
