Published on : Thursday, May 23, 2019

Sri Lanka is attracting a lot of global support for the quick revival of its tourism industry which suffered a heavy blow as an aftermath of the terrorist attacks last month.

 

The International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) Asia Pacific Chapter summoned a special meeting in Frankfurt, Germany on Monday to offer its support and harmony to Sri Lanka and New Zealand.

 

A minute’s silence was observed when the entire Asia Pacific Region came together to support the two nations in their bid to support the recovery of tourism.

 

The meeting was called by Regional Director, ICCA – Asia-Pacific, Noor Ahmad Hamid on the sidelines of IMEX, which is the world’s leading MICE event currently being held in Frankfurt, Germany.

 

Speaking to over 200 ICCA Asia Pacific members, Chairman Sri Lanka Convention Bureau (SLCB), Kumar De Silva spoke about Sri Lanka’s resilience, and stated the fact that the country in general and the tourism industry specifically are fast returning to normal.

 

De Silva said that every possible measure has been taken to ensure the safety of visitors and that the country is open for business.

 

De Silva stressed the fact that none of Sri Lanka’s well-known tourism sites were affected by the recent attacks and that these places are ready to welcome visitors.

 

SLCB, which is Sri Lanka’s apex convention organizer is making a determined push to establish Sri Lanka as a hub for MICE tourism in the South Asian region.
