Keeping in line with the hotel’s environmentally friendly green outlook, World Tourism Day was kicked off with a public beach clean-up jointly organised by the Management and Science University (MSU) in collaboration with Mount Lavinia Hotel.

Hotel staff, MSU students and students from the hotel’s International Hotel School were part of a 100 member team that took to the public beach for the clean-up. The team covered the entire stretch from Mount Lavinia to Dehiwala collecting all forms of waste.

The clean-up concluded with the distribution of plant seedlings to the public and the planting of three trees within the hotel premises.

Tweaking the New Inland Revenue Act (Part II)

Tuesday, 18 December 2018

In the backdrop where the recent amendment to the country’s supreme law is called in question, it may be appropriate to recall that the passage of the new Inland Revenue (IR) Act through Parliament was far more controversial. Nevertheless, the new
