In Aug. 2015, ALIT entrusted CEIEC to act solely on its behalf to fulfill the contract. Those are normal business operations and comply with international business practice.

According to the contract, TRCSL (Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka) paid USD 15,644,980 as advance payment to CEIEC's account in China Export-Import Bank of China on Oct. 9, 2012. This sum had been used for the project purpose solely.

The inauguration of the Lotus Tower project is not only a remarkable milestone of the project, but also a significant symbol of friendly cooperation between China and Sri Lanka. As a state-owned, responsible company, ALIT is operating in more than 40 countries around the world and has won high acclaims from our customers.
