According to Dr. Godahewa, the plan has been drafted after a lengthy analysis and collective agreement.

He has said the government wanted the industry to be aggressive and look at the potential, opportunities, be innovative and capture the opportunities before the country.

The tourism industry has set a target of 2.5 million tourist arrivals by 2016.

    Tourists do not want to go to a country where there is no freedom of traval or speech. The govt. needs to come out with a solid plan of re-gaining the prestige and trust of the international comunity first. Until then……these are all a waste of public money.
