    Your article tells me (as a reader) how much Sri Lanka wants 2 achieve an increase in tourism buy it doesn’t offer me (as a tourist) security. For example: Who are the tourists? Not Sri Lankans but more likely… Europeans. People who want to see and experience something that their country does not have to offer but when we arrive in Sri Lanka, what is expected of us? I don’t know how to speak Sri Lankan, can the people there speak english? You need to stop talking about what Sri Lanka wants and start telling all readers who are deciding to go on a trip abroad, why they should come to Sri Lanka? Talk about things such as communication, accommodation and even give recommendations of where we could eat! This is what grabs my attention when I’m deciding where to go and I’m positive other people would agree.

    Hi Mandy,

    I think you have misubderstood the article. This article is been written from an economic growth perception and it’s managerial decision that our tourism board has taken to enhance the tourism industry and get more revenue in to our country…

    Answering your question why tourist should come to Sri Lanka? now we restructured and redeveloped Sri Lanka tourism development authority, therefore we have developed a National Strategy for Sri Lankan Tourism. Through that tourist who planing to fly in to Sri Lanka will get the correct assistance and we’ll make sure the time that your spending in Sri Lanka would be worth while an unforgettable.

    And for your information, we Srilankans can speak English better than Englishmen.
