First 20 days of June draw over 61,000 tourists to Sri Lanka

Daily FT: The first 20 days of June have drawn 61,183 tourists, increasing the year-to-date figure to 585,669.
Industry sources noted that the arrivals figure is satisfactory given the fact that June too is part of the industry’s off-season.
Indians followed by Russians, Britons, Aussies and Chinese figured in the top five markets in June so far. With over 100,000 arrivals in the first four months of 2023, May’s figure dipped to 83,310.
The brisk inflow in January to April and satisfactory arrivals since then has kept tourism afloat. The 2023 year to date figure of 585,669 accounts for 81.3% of 2022 full year total of 720,000 tourist arrivals.

OSL take:
Sri Lanka’s tourism industry is on a steady growth path with continuously increasing tourist arrivals to the country. The aggressive promotional campaigns carried out by local tourism authorities and the exposure received by Sri Lanka in the foreign media as a must visit tourist destination have all helped the revival of Sri Lanka’s tourism industry. The growing opportunities in the industry could be witnessed by the interest shown by international leisure and hospitality brands to enter the country. On the other hand, local businesses in the tourism industry, especially in the leisure and hospitality sectors, have also invested in refurbishments and expansions of their facilities, indicating a growth and business potential in Sri Lanka’s tourism industry. With new tourism concepts also being identified, there is also the need to develop supplementary infrastructure facilities required by the industry as well. Foreign businesses/investors could confidently explore the growing opportunities in Sri Lanka’s tourism industry.
