Harnessing sustainable tourism to restore the Sri Lankan economy

Sri Lanka has been damaged due to years of war and natural disasters, making it difficult to attract tourists. To make sustainable tourism work in Sri Lanka, there needs to be more investment and funding. The government could invest in hotels and restaurants, transportation systems and other infrastructure that would attract tourists.

Additionally, Sri Lanka needs to make sure that their tourism industry is as low-impact as possible by minimising waste production, limiting water usage and preserving wildlife habitats. Finally, there should be efforts taken to ensure that locally-owned businesses benefit from the influx of tourists instead of large multinational corporations or international hotel chains. 

The Sri Lankan government has implemented several initiatives to stimulate the industry and boost investment, including tax incentives for businesses and increased marketing and promotional activities. It is also important to assess the sustainability of the tourist destinations in Sri Lanka, as well as their contribution to socio-economic development.
