This video shows you that Sri Lanka Stands To Lose India’s Shipping Money By Becoming A Base For China. India has reaffirmed its commitment to the development of Trincomalee port in Sri Lanka during Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s recent State visit.

Well what it's like to be at the departure gate in Colombo/Katunayake until its time for your flight? Here's a glimpse of some ground activity at Colombo International Airport while waiting to catch yet another UL outbound.
