Tourism will strike gold in the East

By Chanaka de Silva


At a recently held press meet in Colombo Chief Minister Eastern Province Naseer Ahamed said the Eastern Province which has enough resources and labour is vying for investment.
Speaking at the occasion Naseer said, today the East is well equipped to handle a wide range of investment. We have a well educated labour force. The province has enough resources to attract investors from many sectors.
We have over one hundred and fifty thousand youths of which there are around four thousand graduates. The Invest in the East 2016 is specially targeted at attracting direct foreign investment. Investors in industries such as, the agriculture, fisheries, livestock, tourism and infrastructure development are eagerly sought after Naseer said.


Speaking at the forum Senior Advisor to Chief Minister of Eastern Province on Tourism Affairs Chandra Mohotti said, if at least three international hotel chains could be won over to start hotels in the Eastern Province it would be a massive boost to tourism in particular and the country in general.
The advantage of having international chains here is that each hotel will train at least four hundred personnel. This would be world class training.


They will be employable anywhere in the world. Further the hotels will be promoted throughout their own chains internationally. They will promote the hotels here in the Sri Lankan and the East along with other hotels in their respective chains. The massive boost and promotion that such international hotels can give Sri Lanka cannot be achieved by any other means.
Finally Chief Minister Eastern Province Naseer Ahamed said, It would be a great opportunity to invest in the east as unlike some provinces we do not have labour shortage.


This initiative 'Invest in the East 2016' receives support from BOI, Export Development Board, Eastern Provincial Council, Ministry of Economic Development and the Sri Lankan Customs and Tourism Development Authority." The event is scheduled to be held on 28 January, in Colombo he said.
