July 14, 2011 (LBO) - Sri Lanka's Maga Engineering, which claims to the country's largest domestic construction contractor, is eyeing international projects in the Middle East and Africa, an official said.
The firm has seen a 30 percent rise in revenues in the 2010/2011 financial year with north east re-construction also helping, chairman M G Kularatne said.

He said in 2009 a global and local economic downturn had slowed business.

Kularatne said in Sri Lanka the firm was involved in building a part of the A-9 highway to the northern Jaffna peninsula, a 63 kilometer Paranthan to Jaffna road, a 30 kilometre Paranthan to Mullativu road and a some work for the Jaffna hospital.

It Colombo it was involved in a 4.0 billion rupee building for the Customs and 2.0 billion rupee expansion of Sethsiripaya, a state administration complex in Battaramulla.
