ECONOMYNEXT - Sri Lanka's President Maithripala Sirisena kicked off construction on an expressway which is financed by China in the island's south on July 04.
The road will end in ex-President Mahinda Rajapaksa's home constituency. Sri Lanka's new administration has been highly critical of Chinese financed projects under the former administration saying they were corrupt and had inflated costs.
