Postby stocks hunter » Sun Sep 11, 2016 9:02 am

Construction sector is become the hot topic now due to the recommencement of the port city project. Overall the sector seems over valued but most of the shares are now trading on considering the future earnings potential.

Sri Lanka construction sector boom seen reviving

Sri Lanka construction sector boom seen reviving

ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka’s construction industry is expected to do well in the next few years given increasing homeownership affordability, big government infrastructure projects and rising demand for high-rises, stock brokers First Capital Equities said.

Growth in the sector slowed down in 2015 after the new government halted some big infrastructure projects, pending reviews of their costs and environmental impact.

“Infrastructure being one the main driving forces of the construction sector, suffered a hefty blow amidst slowdown in the infrastructure drive during 2015,” the brokers said in a research report on the construction sector.

But the brokers said they expect “a booming construction sector over next 2-3 years supported by rising affordability for housing, demand for skyscrapers and the government’s mega infrastructure drive.”

The report said the listed Construction & Building Material Sector on the Colombo bourse is expected to provide 46% average return (annualized 29%) over an 18-month period, well above the expected market return.

First Capital Equities said middle income affordability will be one of the drivers of construction through the housing market.

“Higher affordability coupled with the prevailing lower interest rate regime and accelerating urbanization has increased demand for housing and apartments, driving the construction sector,” they said.

Skyscraper construction will continue to dominate in the tourism and office space sector.

“With the prevailing high tourist arrival figures converting into new hotels, supplementary establishments and shopping malls, skyscraper construction is expected to continue at a similar pace to the last 5 years,” the report said.

“The shortage in office space is also likely to add to the future demand for more skyscrapers over the next 5 years.”

The report also said the new government’s USD 40 billion Western Region Megapolis project will provide a huge boost to the overall construction sector.

Cabinet approves Rs. 137 b Central Expressway section for local contractors

Postby NUMBER CRUNCHER » Thu Nov 10, 2016 5:52 am

Cabinet approves Rs. 137 b Central Expressway section for local contractors

Cabinet yesterday approved allocating Section II of the Central Expressway section from Meerigama to Kurunegala to local contractors at a cost of Rs. 137 billion but declined to explain why only one bid was received for each section or to respond to queries of opaque tender procedures.

The cost for the section, spanning 39.29 km, ran into a dispute as bidders sent in contract packages that were 18%-20% higher than the estimate given by the State engineer, the Cabinet paper submitted by Highways and Higher Education Minister Lakshman Kiriella showed.

However, despite the higher cost the Government did not allow for competitive bidding through open tenders but instead only received one bid for each of the four parts Section II was divided into.

“The Cabinet Appointed Negotiating Committee after having considered the recommendations of the Procurement Committee and the outcome of the negotiations with the bidders decided to recommend for the approval of the Cabinet that the respective contract packages be awarded to the respective consortium of contractors which has submitted the bid for the relevant package at the corresponding negotiated bid price,” the Cabinet paper noted.

It also goes on to say that “only one bid was received for each contract package” and therefore an appeal procedure would not be applicable.

The Government engineers’ initial estimate of Rs. 126.8 billion without VAT was later negotiated up by the Cabinet Appointed Negotiation Committee (CANC) to Rs. 137 billion excluding VAT, which is an 8.05% increase, documents seen by the Daily FT said. Cabinet spokesman Dr. Rajitha Senaratne argued that the revision had to be made as none of the bidders were willing to meet the Government’s estimate.

“The procurement committee and the CANC had several rounds of discussions to sort out this issue. The private sector has always asked to have access to these large scale projects and they were never allowed under the previous Government. Now we have given them this chance,” he disputed.

When reporters raised questions about the other sections of the Central Expressway Dr. Senaratne brushed them aside by promising to ask Highways Minister Lakshman Kiriella to attend the Cabinet briefing next week to respond to concerns.

Local media had earlier reported the Government is in talks with China’s Exim Bank to fund Section I of the Central Expressway, which the contractor, the Metallurgical Construction Company (MCC) of China, has now priced at Rs. 158 billion or Rs. 12 billion more than was originally stated. MCC has been awarded the contract without a tender.

Section I runs 37.1 km from Kadawatha to Mirigama. At the current price, this translates to nearly Rs. 4.3 billion per km. the Government has also run into fresh controversy over its decision to prelist Japanese companies allegedly with the support of the Japanese embassy for the 32.5 km Section III of the Central Expressway from Pothuhera to Galagedara in Kandy.

Under the latest Cabinet decision the entire length of Section II has been broken into four sections named Package A, B, C and D. Package A (9.71km) has been given to the International Construction Consortium (ICC), Access and a joint venture with Nawaloka and Kdesh for Rs. 34.1 billion. Package B (10.20 km) has been parcelled off to Sierra, Olympus, Tudawe Brothers and Consulting Engineers and Contractors (CEC) for Rs. 34.5 billion. Package C was given to K.D.A Weerasinghe and Co. (KDAW), NEM Construction, and the lesser known E&C at a cost of Rs. 32 billion.

Package D, despite having the shortest span of 8.5km, was given to MAGA Engineering, CML-MTD Construction, along with V. V. Karunaratne & Co and Hoveal Construction for Rs. 36.2 billion.

Under this allocation, each kilometre in Package A will cost Rs. 3.52 billion, which is an increase of 8.22% from the initial price estimate. Each kilometre in Package B will cost Rs. 3.39 billion, which is a 7.94% increase and Package C will cost Rs. 2.94 billion per kilometre, a 7.8% increase from the initial estimate given by the State engineers. Package D has the highest cost of Rs. 4.27 billion per kilometre and is a 8.21% increase from the initial forecast. On average, each kilometre of Section II will cost Rs. 3.49 billion.

The Cabinet spokesman defended the price increases saying they were due to design changes made from the initial drawing done during the tenure of the previous Government.

The Cabinet paper submitted by Kiriella noted that the “cost of a kilometre is different from package to package due to the additional cost for construction of interchanges, railway overpasses and operational areas and due to different lengths of viaducts.”

Package A has one interchange and a 2.11 km-long viaduct, Package B two interchanges and a 1.77 km-long viaduct and Package C is a 0.56 km viaduct. Package D will have two interchanges, one railway overpass, one operational area and a 2.35 km-long viaduct.

There will be numerous concrete structures (bridges/culverts/viaducts/retaining walls/under-passages) along the proposed expressway. Since all the contractors will be working simultaneously, there is gonna be sudden spike in cement demand. There are two public quoted cement companies in SL - Tkyo & Lanka Cement. Lanka Cement merely imports cement and sell. I'm not sure what kind of marketing force Lanka Cement has. TKYO not only manufacture cement, they also supply Ready Mix Concrete. This is the rationale behind my bet.

The Corporate tax rate on construction sector increased from 12% to 28%. This will adversely affect construction companies. (Refer page 6 of Asha Phillip budget review 2017)

Turkey expresses interest in Megapolis project

The world's second ranked construction economy came forward to partner with Sri Lanka's ambitious Megapolis project recently.
"Turkish contractors are world renowned. They can partner in various construction projects in Sri Lanka including the planned Megapolis," said Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım on 12 November in Istanbul.

According to the latest ranking of the world's top 250 contractors by Engineering News Record (ENR) magazine, after China (which leads the ranking), Turkey is the second largest economy whose contracting companies build 'the largest volume of projects across the world outside their home countries.' This is the ninth year in a row that Turkey has been ranked second in this global ranking.

Turkish PM Yıldırım was addressing Sri Lanka's Minister of Industry and Commerce Rishad Bathiudeen who made a courtesy call on him on 12 November. Minister Bathiudeen was meeting Turkish PM Yıldırım in the aftermath of his successful Second Session of Sri Lanka –Turkey Joint Committee Meeting of Technical and Economic Cooperation (JCMTEC) in Ankara on 11 November. Minister Bathiudeen led the Lankan delegation to Ankara and was joined by Sri Lankan Ambassador in Turkey, P.M. Hamza.
According to the Department of Commerce, bilateral trade between Turkey and Sri Lanka stood at US$ 230 Mn in 2015.


"I appreciate a Lankan Cabinet Minister officially calling on me for the first time in this way. We are pleased with the progress made by the Government in Sri Lanka" said Turkish PM Yıldırım and added "Sri Lanka and Turkey have cordial and historic relations. Today, is an important day in this ongoing bilateral history since after 26 years, both countries are re-opening trade talks in Ankara and thereby entering a new era. I have been informed of the successful JCMTEC session in Ankara and I am pleased to inform you that we shall be formulating a team of high level Turkish officials to oversee the progress of this JCMTEC as well. We see Sri Lanka not only as a hub in South Asia but as an attractive tourist destination as well. Turkish construction contractors are world renowned. They can partner in various construction projects in Sri Lanka -including the planned Megapolis of Sri Lanka. We are ready to partner."

The Megapolis Project was launched in January 2016 and is expected to be completed in 15 years at an estimated US$ 270 Mn.
"During our Ankara session, both sides agreed to take our bilateral trade to US$ 500 Mn by 2020. I invite Turkish investors and businesses to partner with Sri Lanka and take advantage of the hub positioning that Sri Lanka offers to enter the growing South Asian market. Your proposed appointment of a team of Turkish officials on 'JCMTEC way forward' shows your keenness on our bilateral trade, and I commend it" said Minister Bathiudeen, and added: "We welcome Turkey contractors to partner in Sri Lanka's projects and invite representatives from Turkish contractor community to visit Sri Lanka and see.

I shall take the message of Turkish contractors' interest on Sri Lanka's Megapolis back home to our Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. I also wish to invite a strong trade delegation to Sri Lanka with your esteemed participation to further strengthen bilateral ties that have just been revived by this JCMTEC. I and my Ministry officials shall extend our fullest cooperation to representatives including contractors from Turkey."

During the meeting, both Minister Bathiudeen and Turkish PM Yıldırım also discussed other avenues of bilateral cooperation.

Fujita pips Taisei for Central Highway?

Postby NUMBER CRUNCHER » Wed Nov 23, 2016 9:04 pm

The tender for section three of the Central Highway received two bids from Japanese construction companies, when bidding closed last afternoon.

The Fujita Corporation, which bid Rs. 147 billion, came in as the lower of the two with the Taisei Corporation bidding Rs. 159 billon, which amounts to a difference of Rs. 12 billion. The pre-negotiation tender values are higher than the engineer’s estimate of Rs. 126 billion but officials are confident of a better deal. The fact that there was a second bidder has considerably reduced the possibility of a higher cost. This was after Premier Ranil Wickremesinghe and Embassy of Japan stepped up their efforts to make the bid more competitive.

Work starts on $ 54 m Marine Drive Hotel

Postby NUMBER CRUNCHER » Thu Apr 27, 2017 5:15 am

Japan's Belluna Ltd. envisages $ 500 m investment in tourism and real estate sectors in the next five years

Belluna-Asia Capital collection of projects in SL attracts over $ 500 m

$ 350-400 m multi-development project on D.R. Wijewardena Mw, will begin work next year

Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort to be launched this Christmas

By Charumini de Silva

Asia Capital Plc, in collaboration with Japanese foreign investor and partner Belluna Ltd, yesterday commenced building a $ 54 million, four-star business hotel along Marine Drive, Colombo 3, while envisaging an investment of $ 500 million in the tourism and real estate sectors within the next five years.

The 300-room, 27-floor Marine Drive Hotel is projected to be completed within three years and will be built by leading Japanese construction company Hazama Ando Corporation.

“With Sri Lanka’s tourism and real estate sectors growing exponentially, we foresee an investment of over $ 500 million to Sri Lanka within the next five years,” Belluna Ltd. Managing Director Hiroshi Yasuno told Daily FT.

He further said that Belluna’s offshore expansion focuses strongly on emerging markets and it was pleased to be part of Sri Lanka’s development drive.

“Our eyes are wide open to every good investment opportunity in Sri Lanka. In geopolitical terms, Sri Lanka is in a strategic maritime location, has an educated workforce and has wonderful resources for tourism. Sri Lanka is a great country to invest in due to its rapid economic growth, public safety and also as a country that is very friendly with Japan,” Yasuno stressed.

The collection of projects spells out the long-term vision of the partnership of the joint venture, which has attracted over $ 500 million in foreign direct investment (FDI) to Sri Lanka during the past three years, making Belluna Ltd. the largest private investor from Japan in the real estate sector.

The joint venture thus far collaborated on a series of luxury development projects in Sri Lanka and beyond which includes a 50-villa ultra-luxurious resort in Galle with an investment of $ 15 million, the $ 50 million 447 Luna Tower project, a 190-unit exclusive apartment complex being built at Union Place and a $ 350-$ 400 million multi-development project in Colombo 1 (D.R. Wijewardena Mawatha).

In addition, the joint venture is currently in partnership with leading global hospitality company Marriot International Inc. to open the $ 55 million The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort, a 70-key luxury property focusing on wellness tourism this Christmas.

Asia Capital Group Chief Executive Officer and Director Stefan Abeyesinhe said the $ 350-$ 400 million multi-development project in Colombo 1 would consist of a hotel, office complex and residences.

“This project will be developed on the premises of the former Crown Casino. At present we are doing a fresh design for the entire project and obtaining approvals from the Urban Development Authority (UDA) and Board of Investment (BOI). We hope to commence work by mid-next year,” he added.

Further, he stated that they were looking at a 50-acre plot of land in Arugam Bay on the East Coast of the island to set up a luxury resort.

“We are targeting Arugam Bay as nobody has gone there yet and it is underrated. Currently we have concentrated our projects mostly around the expressway. We expect that the infrastructure on accessibility will be developed to take our investments to the Eastern Province as well,” Abeyesinhe stated.

Commenting on the Marine Drive Hotel project, he asserted that the prime location would be ideal for the new-age business traveller who seeks convenient access to Colombo’s Central Business District, coupled with the contemporary comforts of superior design and amenities.

Noting that travel traffic to Sri Lanka and particularly to Colombo had increased steadily over the years, they expect a noteworthy influx of travellers to their Marine Drive Hotel but pointed out that price points would be a concern.

While offering his congratulations on the joint venture, Japanese Ambassador to Sri Lanka Kenichi Suganuma said there had been a growing interest from Japanese businessmen in investment opportunities in Sri Lanka.

“During Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s visit to Japan recently, we had a seminar which drew over 200 businessmen who were keen on the investment possibilities in Sri Lanka,” he noted.

BOI Chairman Upul Jayasuriya said as far as Japanese investments were concerned, Belluna Ltd. is galloping fast and steadily and will very soon become the largest private investor from Japan in Sri Lanka.

“Japanese investments have now taken a different character, especially after the entry of Belluna Co. We hope that the investors of Japan will provide the prominence and importance that Sri Lanka needs at this point in time,” he stressed.

Jayasuriya also extended an invitation to the Japanese representatives in the audience to take part in an investor forum which is scheduled to be held on 15 May in Osaka, Japan.

Belluna Ltd, Japan is listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE), First Section, with a market capitalisation of approximately $ 800 million (stocks listed on the TSE are separated into the First Section for large companies and Second Section for mid-sized companies).

A diversified company with a core business of mail order, Belluna Ltd, Japan also holds prominence in real estate development. Beyond Tokyo, the company’s investments in real estate span the rest of the globe from Myanmar to the US, including projects in Hollywood, Los Angeles and now Sri Lanka.

AEL or KAPI or LDEV.
AEL is a clear winner between these three.
hope MAGA and ICC to come to market.

ඉදිකිරීම් කර්මාන්තයේ වර්තමානය, අභියෝග හා හෙට දවස

ශ‍්‍රී ලංකාවේ ඉදිකිරීම් ක්ෂේත‍්‍රයේ වර්ධනය අද දවසේ බොහෝ දෙනෙකුගේ කතාබහට ලක්වී ඇත. නිවාස සඳහා ඇති ඉල්ලූම වැඩිවීමත්, නිවාස ඉදිකිරීම සඳහා රජයෙන් ලැබෙන දිරිගැන්වීම වැඩිවීමත් හේතුවෙන් නිවාස ඉදිකිරීම් අංශය වේගයෙන් පුළුල් වෙමින් පවතී. එපමණක් නොව කාර්යාල පහසුකම් අඩුකම නිසා අහස උසට සිදුවන ඉදිකිරීම් දිනෙන් දින වැඩි වෙමින් තිබේ. ශ‍්‍රී ලංකාව තුළ සිදුවන යටිතල පහසුකම් වැඩිදියුණු කිරීම් අතර ඇමරිකානු ඩොලර් බිලියන 40 ක වියදමකින් සිදුකිරීමට නියමිත මහනගර සංවර්ධන ව්‍යාපෘතියත් සමග ඉදිකිරීම් ක්ෂේත‍්‍රය උඩුයටිකුරු වීමට ඉඩ ඇත.

ඉදිකිරීම් ක්ෂේත‍්‍රය සම්බන්ධයෙන් කතා කරන විට ප‍්‍රධාන කරුණු කිහිපයක් කෙරෙහි අවධානය යොමුකළ යුතුව ඇත. එනම් උසස් තත්ත්වයේ අමුද්‍රව්‍ය, නවීන තාක්ෂණය, මනා කළමනාකාරීත්වය, මූල්‍ය විනය, පුහුණු ශ‍්‍රමිකයන්, සුදුසු නියාමන අධිකාරියක් පැවතීම යනාදියයි. ඉදිකිරීම් කර්මාන්තය තුළ තත්ත්වය හා ප‍්‍රමිතිය උසස් තත්ත්වයෙන් පැවතීමට නම් මෙම සාධක මනාව සම්පූර්ණ වීම බෙහෙවින් වැදගත් ය. අඩු මිලට සිමෙන්ති ලබා දීමේ මුවාවෙන් ප‍්‍රමිතියෙන් අඩු සිමෙන්ති ගෙන්වා බෙදාහැරීමට ඇතැම් පාර්ශව පෙළඹී සිටීම නිසා සිමෙන්ති සම්බන්ධයෙන් රටේ පැවති විශ්වාසය යම්තාක් දුරකට පළුදු වී ඇති අතර ප‍්‍රමිතිකරණයේ පවතින යම් යම් අඩුපාඩුද මිට බලපෑම් ඇති කරයි.

ඉදිකිරීම් ක්ෂේත‍්‍රයට අදාළ වන මූලික අමුද්‍රව්‍ය ලෙස සිමෙන්ති, වැලි, ගල් හා යකඩ ආදිය පෙන්වා දිය හැක. මීට අමතරව තවත් බොහෝ දේ ඉදිකිරීම්වලදී යොදාගන්නා නමුත් ඉදිකිරීමක වැදගත්ම සාධක දෙකක් වන එහි ශක්තිය හා කල්පැවැත්ම තීරණය කරන කොන්ක‍්‍රීට්වල තත්ත්වය රඳා පවතිනුයේ සිමෙන්ති, ගල්, වැලි හා යකඩවල තත්ත්වය මත ය.

සිමෙන්ති

ඉහත සඳහන් කළ අමුද්‍රව්‍ය අතරින් විශේෂ තත්ත්ව පාලනයක් යටතේ කර්මාන්ත ශාලාවක නිපදවනු ලබන එකම අමුද්‍රව්‍යය සිමෙන්ති ය. මෙහිදී දේශීය සිමෙන්ති නිෂ්පාදකයා ඔසවා තැබිය යුතු වන්නේ ඕනෑම ඉදිකිරීම් ආයතනයකට මුල සිටමල නිවැරදිව සිමෙන්ති නිෂ්පාදනයේ ප‍්‍රමිතය හා තත්ත්ව පාලනයක් පවත්වා ගත හැකි බැවිනිග ශ‍්‍රී ලංකාව තුළ සිදුවන ඉදිකිරීම් ක්ෂේත‍්‍රයේ පිබිදීමට සමගාමීව ප‍්‍රමිතිකරණයද කිසියම් නවීකරණයකට ලක්වන්නේ නම් හොඳ තත්ත්වයේ සිමෙන්ති තෝරාගැනීමට එය පාරිභෝගිකයන්ට මනා පිටිවහලක් වනු නිසැක ය. මෙම වර්ධනයට සමගාමීවල අඩු මිලට ප‍්‍රමිතියෙන් අඩු සිමෙන්ති ගෙන්වා බෙදා හැරීම වෙනුවට නිසි ප‍්‍රමිතියෙන් යුතු සිමෙන්ති භාවිතයෙහි වැදගත්කම ක්ෂේත‍්‍රය තුල මෙන්ම පාරිභෝගික ජනතාව තුලද ස්ථාපිත කිරීම අත්‍යාවශ්‍යයයග

වැලි

ඉදිකිරීම් ක්ෂේත‍්‍රය මුහුණපා ඇති ප‍්‍රධාන ගැටලූවලින් එකක් වන්නේ උසස් තත්ත්වයේ, පිරිසිදු වැලි ලබාගැනීමේ දුෂ්කරතාවයි. එබඳු වැලි කලාතුරකින් හමු වුවද ඒවා මිලෙන් අධික වේ. ඉල්ලූමට සාපේක්ෂව පවතින සම්පත් හිඟ වීම මීට බලපා ඇති එක් ප‍්‍රධාන හේතුවකි. පමණ ඉක්මවා වැලි භාවිතයෙන් පරිසරයට ඇතිවිය හැකි හානි සලකා බලා රජය විසින් වැලි ගොඩදැමීම සම්බන්ධයෙන් දැඩි නීතිරීති පනවා ඇත.

මේ නිසා යම් යම් පුද්ගලයන් ගොඩ වැලි නිධි සොයාගෙන ඒවායින් වැලි ලබාගැනීමටද පෙළඹී තිබේ. එහෙත් ගොඩ වැලිවල අන්තර්ගත මඩ ප‍්‍රමාණය ප‍්‍රතිශතයක් ලෙස නිර්දේශිත සීමාවන්ට වඩා ඉහළ අගයක් ගන්නා නිසා ගොඩ වැලි භාවිතයේදී කොන්ක‍්‍රීට් මතුපිට ඉරිතැලීම් හා පිපිරීම් ඇතිවීම පාලනය කිරීම ඉතාමත් අපහසු ය.

මෙවැනි තත්ත්වයක් මත ඉදිකිරීම් ක්ෂේත‍්‍රය බිඳ නොවැටීමට නම් රාජ්‍ය හා පෞද්ගලික අංශ දෙකේම ඉක්මන් මැදිහත් වීමක් අවශ්‍ය වේ. මෙහිදී ගැඹුරු මුහුදෙන් වැලි පොම්ප කර ලවණ ප‍්‍රමාණය සුදුසු මට්ටමට පාලනය කොට ලබාදීම සිදුකළ හැක. දැනට ශ‍්‍රී ලංකා ඉඩම් ගොඩකිරීමේ හා සංවර්ධනය කිරීමේ සංස්ථාව මේ සඳහා ආරම්භයක් ලබාගෙන ඇති නමුත් පෞද්ගලික අංශයත් ඒ සඳහා එකතුකර ගැනීමෙන් ඉල්ලූමට සරිලන සැපයුමක් ලබාදිය හැකිවනු ඇත.



බොරළු හා පස්

බොරළු හා පස් ලබාගැනීමේ දුෂ්කරතා බලවත් ලෙස ඉදිකිරීම් කටයුතු වලට බලපායි. මේ සඳහා සුදුසු බිම් සිතියම්ගත කිරීම දැනට යම් ප‍්‍රමාණයකට සිදුවුවත් එය වහාම විසඳිය යුතු තවත් වැදගත් ප‍්‍රශ්නයකි.



කොන්ක‍්‍රීට් ගල්

ඉදිකිරීම් ක්ෂේත‍්‍රයේ ව්‍යාප්තිය වැඩි වන තරමට කොන්ක‍්‍රීට් ගල් හිඟයක් ඇතිවීම ඒකාන්ත වශයෙන්ම සිදුවිය හැක. එමෙන්ම හොඳ තත්ත්වයේ, නියමිත ප‍්‍රමාණයේ හා හැඩයේ කොන්ක‍්‍රීට් ගල් දක්නට ලැබෙනුයේ කලාතුරකිනි.

ඉදිකිරීම් ක්ෂේත‍්‍රයේ නව පිබිදීමත් සමග පැරණි ඉදිකිරීම් කඩා ඉවත් කිරීමද බහුලව සිදුවේ. මෙම සුන්බුන් ප‍්‍රතිචක‍්‍රීකරණය කර නැවත යොදාගැනීමේ ක‍්‍රමයක් සකස් කරගැනීම ඉතාමත් වැදගත් ය. උදාහරණයක් ලෙස ගාල්ල නගර සභාව දැනට වසර 10 කට අධික කාලයක් තිස්සේ සිය ඉදිකිරීම් සඳහා මෙසේ ප‍්‍රතිචක‍්‍රීකරණය කරන ලද අමුද්‍රව්‍ය භාවිතා කිරීම සාර්ථක ලෙස කරගෙන යනු ලබයි. මෙය ශ‍්‍රී ලංකාවේ සියලූ ආයතනවලට ආදර්ශයක් ලෙස පෙන්වා දිය හැක.

යකඩ කම්බි (වැරගැන්නුම්)

වෙළඳපොළේ ඉල්ලූම ඉහළ යාම නිසා ඇතිවී ඇති දැඩි තරගකාරීත්වය මත අඩු මිලට යකඩ කම්බි ලබාදීම සඳහා නිෂ්පාදකයෝ පෙළඹී සිටිති. මේ හේතුවෙන් අඩු ප‍්‍රමිතියේ යකඩ කම්බි යොදා කරනු ලබන ඉදිකිරීම් පසු කාලයේදී කඩාවැටීමේ අවදානමක් ඇති බව ඉදිකිරීම් ක්ෂේත‍්‍රයේ ප‍්‍රවීණයෝ පෙන්වා දෙති.

නවීන තාක්ෂණය

තවමත් ශ‍්‍රී ලංකාවේ ඉදිකිරීම් ක්ෂේත‍්‍රයේ නියැළි වැඩි දෙනෙක් සාම්ප‍්‍රදායික සීමාමායිම්වලින් ඔබ්බට යාම සඳහා මැලිකමක් දක්වනු පෙනේ. මේ නිසා එම ආයතන තුළ මූල්‍ය කළමනාකරණය, තාක්ෂණය හා ව්‍යාපෘති කළමනාකරණය යනාදී සියලූ අංශවල පවතිනුයේ දැඩි පසුබෑමකි. මෙම තත්ත්වයෙන් ගොඩ ඒමට නම් ඉදිකිරීම් කර්මාන්ත සංවර්ධන අධිකාරියේ අධීක්ෂණ කටයුතු තීව‍්‍ර කළ යුතු අතර, කොන්ත‍්‍රාත්කරුවන්ගේ සංගමයත් සහයෝගයෙන් කටයුතු කොට කර්මාන්තය ඉහළට ඔසවා තැබීමට කටයුතු කළ යුතු ය. එමෙන්ම අප මීට පෙරද සාකච්ඡුා කළ පරිදි, අමුද්‍රව්‍ය සම්බන්ධ ගැටලූ මගහරවා ගැනීම සඳහා නවීන තාක්ෂණය භාවිතා කිරීමත්, විකල්ප ද්‍රව්‍ය සඳහා පර්යේෂණ පැවැත්වීමත් අත්‍යවශ්‍ය වේ.

තවද විදේශ ආධාර මත සිදුවන මහා ව්‍යාපෘතිවලදී ජාත්‍යන්තර සමාගම් සමග එක්ව වැඩකිරීමේ අවස්ථාව දේශීය කොන්ත‍්‍රාත්කරුවන් වෙත ලබා දිය යුතු ය. ඒ සඳහා රජය මැදිහත් වී කටයුතු කිරීම වැදගත් වන අතර එමගින් දේශීය කොන්ත‍්‍රාත්කරුවන්ගේ දැනුම, හැකියාවන් හා දක්ෂතාවත් බොහෝ ඉහළ මට්ටමකට ගෙන යා හැක.

පුහුණු ශ‍්‍රමය

අප අවධානය යොමු කළ යුතු මීළඟ ප‍්‍රධාන කරුණ වන්නේ පුහුණු ශ‍්‍රමයයි. පැහැදිලිවම ශ‍්‍රී ලංකාව තුළ පුහුණු ශ‍්‍රමිකයන්ගේ හිඟයක් පවතී. එම නිසා ව්‍යාපෘති නිසි වේලාවට නිමකර ගැනීමට නොහැකිව කොන්ත‍්‍රාත්කරුවෝ ගැටලූ රාශියකට මුහුණදෙති. මහබැංකු වාර්තාවන්ට අනුව, ශ‍්‍රී ලංකාවේ කොන්ත‍්‍රාත්කරුවන් විසින් භාරගන්නා ලද ඉදිකිරීම්වල වටිනාකම 1995 වසරේදී රු. බිලියන 15 ක් වූ අතර එය 2015 වසර වන විට රු. බිලියන 200 දක්වා වැඩිවී තිබේ. මෙය 1233% ක ඉහළ යාමකි. එහෙත් මීට සාපේක්ෂව ශ‍්‍රම බලකාය වර්ධනය වී ඇත්තේ 8% ක් තරම් ඉතා සුළු ප‍්‍රතිශතයකින් පමණි. මෙම ගැටලූව මගහරවා ගැනීම සඳහා වෘත්තීය අධ්‍යාපනය පාසල් විෂය ධාරාවට පහළ ශ්‍රේණිවල සිටම ඇතුළත් විය යුතු අතර එම එම විෂයය සඳහා විශේෂ පුහුණුවක් ලැබූ දක්ෂ ගුරුවරුන් යොදාගත යුතු ය.

පාසල් හැරගොස් සිටින රැුකියා විරහිත තරුණ තරුණියන් විශාල ප‍්‍රමාණයක් දිවයින තුළ සිටියත්, ඉදිකිරීම් ක්ෂේත‍්‍රයේ නියැළීමෙන් වැඩි ආදායමක් ලබාගැනීමේ හැකියාවක් ඇතත්, සමාජය තුළ මුල්බැසගෙන තිබෙන, ඉදිකිරීම් කටයුතුවල යෙදෙන්නන් පිළිබඳ පහත මානසිකත්වයන් වෙනස් කරන තෙක්, තරුණ පිරිස් ඉදිකිරීම් ක්ෂේත‍්‍රයට ඇතුළත් කරගත නොහැක.

රජයත්, පෞද්ගලික අංශයත් ඒකාබද්ධ වී පුළුල් වැඩපිළිවෙළක් ක‍්‍රියාත්මක කිරීම, තනතුරු නාම, නිල ඇඳුම්, නිල හැඳුනුම්පත්, බැංකු ණය පහසුකම් ආදිය පිරිනැමීම සහ සේවා පරිශ‍්‍රයේ හිතකාමී පරිසරයක් නිර්මාණය කිරීම ආදිය තුළින් මෙම අඩුව පහසුවෙන් සපුරාගත හැකිවනු ඇත.
