Sri Lanka, was well known throughout the world as a tropical paradise in the middle of the Indian Ocean. But due to the brutal Civil war that ravaged the country for a quarter century, much of Sri Lanka’s fame as well as her charm which attracted thousands of tourists a year vanished.
Since the end of the bloody conflict that claimed the lives of tens of thousands of innocent men women and children in late 2009, the Sri Lankan government has begun the painstaking task of recovering and re-building the good name of Sri Lanka in the hearts of Tourists.
The government together with Multinational Non Governmental Organizations and foreign Aid groups has begun a rapid development campaign focusing the tourism industry. The main focus of these construction projects in sri lanka being of Roads and Highways as well as re-building infrastructure such as Water, Electricity, Healthcare and Education. The fact that Post war Sri Lanka topped the UNWTO list in the first two months of 2010 is proof of the rate at which these development projects proceed. This form of urgency is justified considering the fact that Tourism is one of the major forms of foreign exchange income to the country.
The government is also announcing mega tourism projects as well as huge incentives to attract foreign investment. The Sri Lankan Tourism Development Authority has introduced up to 45 new tourism Zones across the country, most of which focused solely on the Northern And Eastern provinces in a bid to attract more tourists to these once war torn lands.
There are many amazing tourist attractions in these territories which have not been visited by foreigners for over 25 years. The Sri Lankan Government under the orders of President Mahinda Rajapakse has invoked multiple development projects to especially develop the infrastructure of these key areas as well. The project known as the “Northern Awakening” is focused on five districts of the northern province; Jaffna, Killinochchi, Mulativu, Vavuniya and Mannar.
Among other more pressing concerns of the Government are the De-mining of the former conflict zones and the re settlement of the internally displaced civilians in their homes. The government has made very good progress so far, 24,863 families were resettled in Jaffna District and resettlement assistance of Rs 25,000 was paid to 22,000 families. 147,800 Cement bags and 98,208 Roofing Sheets were delivered to resettled families. 24,219 families have received the Dry food Materials. Jungle clearance activity has been completed in 72 GN Divisions and 2,500 families benefited.
There are many other side projects as well. These include building Houses in Sri Lanka, Irrigation, Water Supply and Sanitation, Education, Health Community Development as well as Road and Bridge construction.
