The meeting started with screening of a video on a large size digital screen on ‘Sri Lanka at a Glance’. The Ambassador used the PowerPoint presentation to give a wide knowledge about Sri Lanka among the participants. She also explained the reasons to select Sri Lanka as a tourist destination and informed them that Sri Lanka was named Asia’s leading destination in 2017 at the World Travel Awards Asia and Australasia which was held in Shanghai, and the country was also named the leading adventure tourism destination.

More than 40 travel agents participated at this event. After the presentation the floor was opened for discussions. Most of the participants emphasised the importance of having direct flights between Colombo and Kathmandu in order to promote tourism. “Sri Lanka known as the pearl of Indian Ocean and Nepal, the land of Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world, could benefit mutually in the tourism sector,” they said.

They also appreciated organising this event and requested to arrange meetings between embassy officials and travel agents frequently. The guests appreciated the presentation. The brochures and DVD on Sri Lanka were provided to all guests.

The meeting was followed by high tea.
