The Agreement was signed by Mangala Yapa, Chairman of the Board of Investment of Sri Lanka and Mohamed Nazar Mahamed Rizan, Managing Director of the Company.

This new project in Kandy will create 61 new employment opportunities and represents an investment of US$5.2 million.

Mr. Rizan provided further information on his project and its importance to the tourism industry. "This is a project for a 5-Star hotel in Kandy, which is my hometown and a very beautiful city. As tourism to Kandy has developed considerably, we will need more hotel rooms."

"Our project is for a 67 room, 5-star hotel which will take 1 years to complete. However, we are looking at expanding the project by building at a later stage an additional 27 rooms. The hotel will have 2 banquet halls, so it is ideal for weddings," Mr. Rizan added.
