Chairman's Message

Blue Ocean Group Positioned Financially, Operationally, and Culturally to Transform the Construction and Real Estate Industry

The Real Estate Giant is All Geared Up to Meet Any Challenges from the Future

The COVID-19 pandemic has defied most economic predictions and taken a toll on the global economy, with a significant effect on most industries. While the world has not yet fully emerged from the pandemic, it is definitely in a better state than the previous years. This is true to most industries as well as the real estate and the construction sector which were braving the waves of uncertainty the pandemic has brought forth.

The Blue Ocean Group's Proven Steps to Inspire Confidence and Seize New Growth

The specialty of the Blue Ocean group is that having foreseen these challenges, the group has set a clear strategic path, set by professionally qualified and experienced corporate planners under the leadership of its chairman Mr. Sivarajah Thumilan. As a result, the group is now geared to provide to the needs and wants of the different social groups almost intuitively and in the long run, support the government in its quest for self-sufficiency even amidst the crippling hurdles thrown by the pandemic and the global economy. It continues to play to its strengths and reshape its strategies, including investing in markets where the government is committed to long-term infrastructure programmes and choosing to exclude regions and sectors which cannot provide profitable, low-risk growth. Despite these challenges, the Blue Ocean Group has continued on its policy of offering quality apartments at reasonable prices to the general public and foreign investors.

The Group is also aware of the industry being riddled with unscrupulous builders who adopt a “hit and run” approach with their projects. Lack of qualifications, competent staff, sufficient experience, finances, or access to good quality building materials have led to this attitude which in turn results in higher cost and time over-runs, culminating with customer disappointment. The vision of the Blue Ocean Group is “To be the most highly respected and ethical company in the industry,” standing as a stark contrast to such builders and safeguarding the ethics in the industry, being true to their dedication to Integrity, Quality, Discipline, Flexibility, Safety, and Service. The Group’s priority is executing their already strong order book which is foreseen to drive attractive cash generation and returns in years to come, providing the group a strong foundation to stand on.

The Group’s dedication to build, maintain, protect and enhance their reputation as the most ethical, efficient, and trusted company among their employees, clients, customers, supply chain partners, investors, and the community at large has safeguarded their position in the market as pioneers and trailblazers in the industry, while their robust approach to corporate responsibility, has ensured delivery of the highest quality within budget. Their strong and sturdy foundation built over many years of trust, dedication, loyalty, and steadfastness are what help them stand strong even in the face of the storms that an unstable economy brings.

Redefying the Real Estate and Construction Industry

Developers in Sri Lanka, including the Blue Ocean Group, are in collaboration with the Urban Development Authority to introduce new laws and reforms to increase foreign investment in the real estate sector, and with the government stepping in to the equation it is expected to bring about the unprecedented advantages to the industry and the country’s economy as a whole.

Since the new regime came into power, it introduced some of the lowest corporate tax rates in Southeast Asia. Reduced bank rates, increase in resident visa duration, and encouraging Cryptocurrency are some of those measures that have seen results in encouraging foreign investment in the real estate and construction industry.
