Small community tourism development in Sri Lanka

9 JANUARY – 2:30PM COLOMBO

Tourism in Sri Lanka has grown strongly over the past several years. The country received 1.9 million tourists in 2019. The established tourism sector is based around sun and sand, wildlife and ancient culture and growth has placed stress on national parks and more well-developed attractions. Further, opportunities to meet local people and learn their culture are limited. The Government of Sri Lanka is developing its tourism sector to encourage new forms of tourism and to ensure the benefits of visitor expenditure are received in less developed areas and by smaller communities. This webinar will discuss a number of projects targeting development of tourism in small communities in Sri Lanka.
