A team of Asian Development Bank (ADB) officials led by Vice-President, Ms. Schaefer-Preuss, is expected to visit Jaffna Thursday, sources in Jaffna said. The team will be supervising ADB development projects in Jaffna as well as meet several persons including Jaffna Government Agent. This is the first time that a high profile team of ADB visiting Jaffna as ADB representatives visiting Sri Lanka normally stop with Colombo and talks with Sri Lanka government representatives, the sources added.

The visit is observed in the light of discontent among the local contractors who had not been offered opportunity to take part in the ADB development projects in Jaffna peninsula due Sri Lanka government manipulation of giving first preference to contractors from South.
