ECONOMYNEXT - Sri Lanka's sale of a port to China for 1.1 billion dollars will boost foreign exchange reserves, helping repay some debt falling due, Moody's, a rating agency said.

"Earnings from the Hambantota Port stake sale will feed into the central bank’s foreign-exchange reserves, which will help bolster investor confidence and encourage future portfolio inflows," Moody's said.

"Importantly, the sale will allow the government to set aside earnings to repay its upcoming debt maturities and reduce its external debt, a key constraint on Sri Lanka’s credit quality. "

External debt maturities in 2019-22 totalled 13.8 billion dollars.

Moody's said Sri Lanka’s balance-of-payments position remains vulnerable after foreign-currency reserves materially declined in late 2016 and early 2017.

"More recently, reserves have risen somewhat because of capital inflows from international sovereign bond issuance and syndicated loans," the rating agency said.

However other analysts who forecasted the BOP crisis before the rating agencies, say Sri Lanka's (and other soft pegged regimes) currency problems are related to credit and central bank credit (money printing).

Sri Lanka's bank credit is falling after rates were raised allowing the central bank to buy dollars, sterilize the rupee proceeds and lock in forex reserves by selling down its domestic asset stock (sterilized forex purchase).

Under a BOP crisis, a soft-pegged central bank will sterilize forex sales (print more money to inject rupees to replace liquidity mopped up through dollar sales), driving credit to unsustainable levels.

CMPort Aquire stakes of Hambantota Project

http://www.cmport.com.hk/EN/news/Detail.aspx?id=10007328

The Board of China Merchants Port Holdings Company Limited (“CMPort” or the “Company”, HKSE code: 0144) is pleased to announce that, on 25th July 2017, CMPort, Sri Lanka Ports Authority (“SLPA”), the Government of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka (“GOSL”), Hambantota International Port Group (Private) Limited ("HIPG") and Hambantota International Port Services Company (Private) Limited ("HIPS") have agreed on the terms of the Concession Agreement in relation to the development, management and operation of the Hambantota Port.

 CMPort will agree to invest an amount of up to USD1,120.00 million (equivalent to approximately HKD8,736.00 million) into Hambantota Port and Hambantota port and marine-related activities, of which the total amount to be paid to SLPA for the acquisition of the 85% issued share capital of HIPG shall be USD973.658 million (equivalent to approximately HKD7,594.53 million) (and HIPG shall use a portion of such amount to acquire 58% issued share capital of HIPS) and the remaining USD146.342 million (equivalent to approximately HKD1,141.47 million) shall be deposited into a bank account in the name of the Company in Sri Lanka and will be utilised for such Hambantota port and marine-related activities as may be agreed with GOSL within one year from the final payment of capital injection in HIPG and the Company shall be entitled to repatriate any amounts in the bank account at the expiration of such one year period if no agreement has been reached with GOSL for the use of such funds.

Pursuant to the Concession Agreement, SLPA and GOSL will grant (i) to HIPG, the sole and exclusive right to develop, operate and manage the Hambantota Port and (ii) to HIPS, the sole and exclusive right to develop, operate and manage the Common User Facilities, for the operation of the Hambantota Port. The term of the Concession Agreement shall commence on the Concession Agreement Effective Date of 99 years. During the first 15 years from the Concession Agreement Effective Date, SLPA and GOSL shall ensure that there shall be no, and shall not obtain any fresh tenders, granting any right to any third party, or discuss, negotiate or entering into any arrangement or agreement with any third party in relation to the development of any port/terminal development directly in competition with the port services and activities carried out at the Hambantota Port within 100 km perimeter from the periphery of the Hambantota Port.

 The Port of Hambantota is located on the Southern coast of Sri Lanka occupying a prime location within 10 nautical miles to the main shipping route from Asia to Europe and is also in a strategic position along the “Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road”. Hambantota Port is a comprehensive deep-water port, the Hambantota Port project is a project to develop a major industrial and service port with an attached industrial zone in the Port of Hambantota and it is currently expected that the project will comprise of three phases. With 10 berths in Phase 1 and 2, and quay length of up to 3,487 meters; the berths are specialized to handle containers, bulk cargos, general cargos, RO-RO cargos and liquid bulk. Water depth alongside the quay and navigation channel is -17 meters, which makes Hambantota Port a deep-water port capable of handling super-mega vessels. Hambantota Port has great potential for future expansion, with its hinterland covering the South Asian region, and as a maritime hub in the region.

 CMPort has, in recent years, been actively exploring and, as and when deemed appropriate, capturing available opportunities overseas as the means to effectively add new growth drivers to its existing and sustainably growing ports business. Having already established a story of success in Port of Colombo through the development of the Colombo International Container Terminals Ltd., the addition of the Hambantota Port will provide the Company a platform to materialise synergies between the two major ports in Sri Lanka, unlocking the county’s potential to be a global maritime center.

About Hambantota

 The Port of Hambantota is located at 6o07 North and 81o06 East at the Southern coast of Sri Lanka. The Hambantota Port project is a project to develop a major industrial and service port with an attached industrial zone in the Port of Hambantota and it is currently expected that the project will comprise of three phases. Phase 1 of the Hambantota Port was completed in December 2011 and has commenced operation since June 2012. Construction works for Phase 2 was completed in April 2015.

Future Prospects for Hambantota

  China Merchants Group Limited, the Company’s parent company, has rich experience and resources in implementing the “Port + Park + City” Model (e.g. Shekou, Zhangzhou). The significant landmass of the project (approximately 11.5km2 port area) gives leeway for the Company to implement and capitalize on the said model to add substantial value to the port operations and development. Furthermore, the Company has also entered into a cooperation framework agreement with China Harbour to explore possible future cooperation and joint development and operation in relation to the Hambantota Port and the industrial park adjacent to the Hambantota Port. As at the terms and conditions for such cooperation is yet to be finalise, the Company will further disclose when such cooperation materialises.

When I was small there were Chinese Traders walking village to village selling cloths & ornaments. Some of them married Sinhala ladies & settled down in remote villages. Their descendants speak Sinhala & carry Sinhala names.
