COLOMBO, March 1 (Reuters) – Sri Lanka’s cabinet has approved the awarding of a $180 million deal for three offshore patrol vessels for the country’s coast guard to Colombo Dockyard , a government document said on Wednesday.
Colombo Dockyard has agreed to arrange a loan for the deal, with 40 percent provided by the Japanese Funding Institution of JBIC, another 40 percent from Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi UFJ, and the rest from a tied commercial term loan facility, the document said.
