From February 11 through 13, the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) conducted port security capacity building at the Port of Colombo with more than 25 Sri Lankan port officials, the US Embassy in Colombo said last week.

The event strengthened the port’s security capabilities through drills that improved agency coordination and the implementation of the port’s security plan.
