This is the first of its kind event organized by the Embassy with the participation of a large number of travel industry representatives since the opening of the Mission in 2002 in Brasilia.

Welcoming participants, the Ambassador of Sri Lanka to Brazil Sumith Dassanayake explained the importance of the contribution made by the tourism industry to the economy of the Island Nation.
