With the onset of a post pandemic world, HIPG is positioning the port to take on new challenges of supply chain disruption and the readjustment of international commerce on shipping lanes. “We are confident that the Hambantota International Port (HIP) will be a major stop on the East West maritime lanes for bunkering, energy services, all port related services and marine services. Our vision is to globalize our operations, where we will look internationally for opportunity, yet act locally. We are firmly committed towards creating opportunities for both local companies and international players, so that they will find synergies in HIP and Sri Lanka. We will offer the best facilities with a view to making HIP a gateway port for the southern regions of Sri Lanka. HIP will always act as a responsible corporate citizen regarding the wellbeing of our employees and adjacent communities, the environment and will continue our good practices in operations and engagement,”
