Call tenders for all Chinese projects: Construction Chamber

The Chamber of Construction Industry Sri Lanka has called for all projects funded by China to be awarded after a process of competitive tendering, at least among the Chinese Contractors, according to a press release.

President of Chamber of Construction Industry Sri Lanka, Eng. Maj. Ranjith Gunatilleke insisted that “to ensure principles of good governance, in future, all projects funded by China should be awarded after a process of competitive tendering, at least among the Chinese Contractors”.

He made this comment at the 10th International Infrastructure Investment & Construction Forum held in Macua, China recently, where the Chamber of Construction Industry Sri Lanka was privileged to be elected to head the Rotating Secretariat for the current year.

This Forum attended by nearly 2000 delegates including Ministers from 60 countries was organized for the 10th consecutive year by the China International Contractors Association.

Eng. Maj. Ranjith Gunatilleke’s request was well received by the Senior Government and Bank Officials of China who were present at the Forum.
