“We had a series of events including talent shows successfully. The winner of the Pageant who will be selected and crowned on Saturday, will travel to Bangkok in September to attend the ‘Mrs Tourism International Pageant’ to be held and will compete with contestants from over 60 countries, and one of the key task to be achieved there is to promote Sri Lanka as an attractive tourist destination during the event” Dr. Arosha further added.

I would like to extend my gratitude to the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority and other government authorities for their support provided to us during the event” Dr. Arosha concluded.
