Image of SL's South as major tourist destination to be protected says Weligama UC chairman



article_image

Chairman, Weligama Urban Council Rehan Wijeratne Jayawickreme speaking at a press conference convened by the Ministry of Tourism yesterday said that considering the high return industry tourism has developed into, the popularity of the South and its safety for tourists would take precedence in economic policy-making to encourage increasing tourist arrivals, particularly to his Urban Council area.

‘I can speak with confidence in reference to Weligama, and ensure that our contribution to the economy of this country would not be stifled at any time in future. The incident that occurred in our area was unfortunate, but thanks to the police we have taken corrective action that the seriousness of the despicable behavior of these thugs will not be repeated. I am fully aware of the importance of tourism to swell our forex earnings; more so that the South forms an important cog in projecting the image of our country to foreigners who visit for the ‘Sun and Sand’. Its good image will always be maintained, Jayawickreme said in reference to an incident where some foreigners were harassed by some local criminal elements in Mirissa and Weligama.
