Sri Lanka is preparing a master plan

18 Kasım, 2009 | 16:35

Sri Lanka is preparing a 10-year tourism master plan covering new infrastructure in former war zones and avoiding the haphazard development that happened in existing resort areas, an official said.

Sri Lanka S Kalaiselvam, director-general of the Tourism Authority, said a new master plan was needed to ensure planned, sustainable development of tourism in the island, which is emerging from a 30-year ethnic war.

Already the authority has prepared plans for new resort areas including two in Nilaveli and Kuchchaveli on the east coast, and one in Kalpitiya on the north-west coast.

It has invited local and foreign investors with proposals to build resorts for which land will be allocated.

“We need to do plans for other areas as well,” Kalaiselvam told a seminar organised by the US Agency for International Development to identify growth opportunities in the east for the private sector.

“We’re preparing a master plan that will identify what is needed in various areas.”

Sri Lanka intends to attract 2.5 million tourists by 2016, from just half-a-million a year today.

“The private sector is confident the target is achievable,” Kalaiselvam said. “The east coast has the best beaches – it is a good product.”

    Sri Lanka is trying to leave the bitter hateful past behind and face the future positively. All the anti-Sri Lankans that are disappointed with end of war and missing the show of failing Sri Lanka are still try their best to achieve what they want…

    Sri Lankan Tamils are better off in Sri Lanka without evil outside forces. People get prpoer recognition irrespective of their race in Sri Lanka. S Kalaiselvam, director-general of the Tourism Authority, is a SRI LANKAN TAMIL himself. He invites visitors when evil INDIAN TAMIL groups in Tamilnadu rally agaisnt Indian Film Festival that is to be held in Sri Lanka- waht a comedy! Sri Lankan Tamils need peace and properity they lost due to the war and terrorism. What west and Tamilnadu needs is a war and suffering of Sri Lankans. LET’S SEE WHO IS GOING TO WIN.
