WISTA Sri Lanka organizes insightful port tour

WISTA Sri Lanka organized a guided port tour for members and their children to educate the future generation about port operations and create awareness about the capabilities of the Port of Colombo (POC).

On 28 January, the WISTA bus picked the children and mothers and proceeded to the newly-constructed Break Water. Colombo International Container Terminals Assistant General Manager-Commercial and Marketing, Catriona Jayasundera outlined the significance of the Break Water and its purpose. They were then shown tug boats, dredgers, container vessels and cruise ships.

Then they were taken on a drive through the container yard and shown different types of containers and a picturesque moment near MSC vessel. An informative video session and quiz, enhanced the children's knowledge.

WISTA Sri Lanka President Shehara Jayawardena said, "I am proud that WISTA Sri Lanka invested in the future generation, this is the first step to create diversity in the Shipping and Logistics Industry, which is still a male- dominated industry." She observed, "I believe that experiential learning is the most effective method to teach and inspire children. Forming lasting memories, it is the route of talent to the industry In a challenging maritime landscape. The Port of Colombo has yet again shown growth. This year, POC grew by 10.6% and is poised to be among the highest ranking ports in terms of growth, this is indeed remarkable."

A member observed; "The excitement of the children is overwhelming and is a testament to an organized port visit. I am indeed happy to be part of WISTA Sri Lanka"

The children were given a corporate gift bag from South Asia Gateway Terminals, and a knowledge of the Port and its significance to the Global Maritime Industry.
