SRI LANKA DENIED FREEHOLD STATUS FOR CHINESE, ALLOWED ONLY 99 YEAR LEASE
The Chinese super developer ‘CCCC’ or China Communications Construction Company is building an RM57 billion (US$13 billion) mega-port and coastal development in Sri Lanka (just like in Melaka, Carey Island and Johor).
However the Sri Lankans did not allow the Chinese any freehold land status.
They only gave the Chinese ’99 year leasehold land status”.
And the Chinese agreed.
