OSL Take:

In consideration of the vast experience of IFC/World Bank in developing and structuring PPP’s particularly in this region, IFC will be an ideal partner for supporting the 1st ever PPP drinking water project in Sri Lanka.

In this backdrop, OSL wants potential overseas investors to register their interest with OSL ASAP to bid for the upcoming water projects planned by the government of Sri Lanka.

Also, in this fast developing sector (placed strategically in the Western Region Megapolis Masterplan) many rural towns will switch from traditional well-water dependence to pipe-borne water in the near future as land is being quickly utilized for various development projects by the private sector and government as well.
