Tourism industry targets tremendous growth

    1983 unrest in Srilanka got worldwide publicity from the tourists giving interviews to the TV networks upon arriving to their respective countries and I could watch it on the French TV. As we all know that this was the turning point on Srilankan conflict getting world sympathy for the Tamil separatists.

    Authorities should be careful about the visiting hardliners in disguise for their missions

    This includes religious hardliners, drug traffickers and other missionaries against the Srilanka`s development.

    Gmjaya, what you are trying to say is that tourist returning home from SL in 1983 were all religious hardliners, drug traffickers and other missionaires against the SL development.

    Sounds a bit ridiculous, doesn`t it?

    And Kiora, SL needs tourists to survive financially, if only Indian people could provide the same amount of money it would be ok, but I doubt it that will be the case.
