The Board of Investment of Sri Lanka organized a briefing seminar for members of the tour guide profession at the BOI’s Auditorium in the World Trade Centre recently.
The meeting was attended by a large number of tour guides both from Sri Lanka and overseas representing all leading tour and travel companies in the country.  
The rational   for this programme is that tour guides are often among the first people to meet foreign visitors to the island and having this initial contact with potential investors, they should be able to advice and guide them in the event ofinterest on their part.
The event was coordinated by Vipula Jayasinghe - Senior Deputy Director (Promotion) and China Desk Officer and the welcome speech to tour guides was conducted by Prasanjith Wijayathilake - Executive Director (Investment Promotion).  
The keynote address was made by Indika Vithana, President of the INTGL Sri Lanka who mentioned that the tour guides are often excellent ambassadors for their country since they often speak different languages and have regular contacts with foreign visitors who may be potential investors.

The programme also included an address by the Assistant registrar of Companies L .K. S. Dharmakeerthi; and lectures on Sri Lanka’s hub operations; on the BOI’s functions; and types of investments that can be made; and on BOI’s One Stop Shop and opportunities to investment.
The programme is an effort of the part of the BOI to strengthen ties with other profession who may be in contact with potential investors.
