Must read

The Consulate General of Sri Lanka in Guangzhou, together with the Guangdong Scenery International Travel Agency, participated in the annual Guangzhou International Travel Fair (GITF) from December 4 to 6.

Visitors to the Sri Lanka’s booth requested information on tourist sites, travel procedures and the COVID-19 situation in the country to visit after travel restrictions are lifted in China.

The Travel Fair is one of the most important B2B and B2C travel fairs in Southern China, focusing on inbound and outbound travel, showcasing and promoting tourism products and services. Sri Lanka had been participating in the Fair for several years, through the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau (SLTPB) in coordination with the Consulate, which facilitated delegations from the Sri Lankan Travel and Tourism Trade.

In previous years, Sri Lanka won several awards as the ‘Most Attractive’ and ‘Most Popular’ destination at the Fair, and even participated as the ‘guest country’ in 2019, with ministerial representation.

This year’s exposition hosted 123 local and international exhibitors related to the travel industry, while over 10,000 visitors attended the Fair.
