Group of leading French travel agents in Sri Lanka to experience all the country has to offer

A group of French travel agents consisting of seven leading travel agents recently arrived in Sri Lanka for an eight-night, nine-day tour to experience all that Sri Lanka has to offer in order to promote tourism in the country.
According to local media reports, the group is to visit tourism hotspots such Kandy, Passikudah, Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa while also exploring lesser-known destinations such as Mandaramnuwara, Galoya and Inginiyagala.
The familiarisation tour is organised by leading destination management company in Sri Lanka, Connaissance De Ceylan Ltd. and Theme Resorts and Spas Ltd., which is the company’s hotel arm, in partnership with SriLankan Airlines and Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau.
“In order for the country’s economy to bounce back and to have a steady flow of much needed forex, we should relook at reviving the tourism industry of the country to its former glory. Whatever the domestic issues, tourism industry stakeholders should be facilitated to make a quick comeback,” Connaissance and Theme Resorts Chairman Chandra Wickramasinghe has been quoted as saying in the media.

OSL take:

Sri Lanka’s tourism industry was one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the country when the global pandemic resulted in travel restrictions. However, the industry is now on the path to return to normalcy amidst economic challenges faced by the country. Sri Lanka has also received much exposure in foreign media as a must visit tourist destination while also being listed among the top island destinations by leading travel magazines. Sri Lanka’s tourism authorities are also focused on promoting the country in new tourist source markets as well as explore new tourism concepts. The growing business potential in Sri Lanka’s tourism industry has attracted many foreign businesses/investors to the country, especially in the leisure and hospitality sectors. All these have also resulted in an interest among foreign tour operators to see what Sri Lanka has to offer visitors. With the country’s tourism industry showing signs of growth, foreign businesses/investors could confidently explore the growing opportunities in the industry, especially in the leisure and hospitality sectors.
