The number of international airlines operating flights to Sri Lanka has seen an increase this month, indicating an increase in the number of foreign travellers visiting the country. The resumption of flights to Sri Lanka by Air France also indicates an increase in French tourists visit the country. Sri Lanka’s tourism industry that was affected by the global pandemic and political instability in the country during the past few months, is once again on the path to recovery with a steady growth in tourist arrivals to the country. The continuous promotional campaigns carried out by the local tourism industry in key foreign tourist source markets and the promotion of new tourism concepts in identified markets have also helped boost tourist arrivals to the country. Sri Lanka has also received exposure in the international media as a must visit tourist destination. All these are indicative of the expansion in Sri Lanka’s business/investment opportunities in the tourism industry, especially in the leisure and hospitality sectors. Also, there is a growing need for the setting up of supplementary infrastructure facilities required by the country’s aviation and tourism industries. The growth momentum in the aviation and tourism industries have already attracted the attention of foreign businesses, who have already expressed interest in investing in these industries in Sri Lanka.
