Adverse travel advisories the biggest obstacle – Tourism Secretary

Tourism Ministry Secretary George Micheal at a recent news briefing said that the biggest task that the industry is faced with is to have the adverse travel advisories against Sri Lanka lifted.

Mainly Western countries have been continuously issuing warnings against visiting Sri Lanka in the past and the Tourism authorities have been able to convince some of these countries to alter their notes of caution.

But if they issue such warnings in their travel advisories once more tourists from those countries would look for other options and it will impact negatively on us he pointed out.
