Chaminda Ediriwickrama, Sales & Marketing Director of Litro Gas said ‘As the national LPG company it gives us much pride to extend our support for this pageant event which will showcase both the industry as well as the country in the global arena. This will undoubtedly further uplift Sri Lanka’s image as an emerging tourism brand. ’
‘The hospitality sector is one of the key customer segments for Litro Gas. This is a first in our sponsorship drive and we are confident to tie-up in similar endeavors in the future,’ he added. Litro Gas will also be hosting a fun-filled and interactive cookery competition among pageant contestants on the 19th of next month.
The sparkling crown studded with Ceylon stones, presently being designed and crafted by Fine Jewellery Company, will be worn by the winner who will also serve as a tourism promotion ambassador for Sri Lanka during her period of reign.
