The ground work for the development of Point Pedro has been commenced.
The Minister of Fisheries, Mahinda Amaraweera made a visit to Point Pedro to study about the development of the Point Pedro Harbour and studied the field situation here. Now modern equipment has been brought and tests are being made regarding the depth and nature of the soil.
It is learnt that after these tests are completed, reports will be submitted and after that only the real work will start.
It is notable that, another harbour was intended for Kurunagar, in Jaffna and due to various factors including political ones it had been shifted to Pesalai.
