The Sri Lanka-Nordic Business Council of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce will be organising a Seminar on ‘Opportunities for Developing the Tourism Sector in the Nordic Region’, on 29 October, at 3 p.m., at the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce. 

The Seminar will cover the latest trends in the inbound/outbound tourism sector and the strategies to increase tourist arrivals from the Nordic Region to Sri Lanka. The Nordic region encompasses Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Greenland, and the Faroe and Aland Islands. 

Ambassador for Royal Norwegian Embassy in Sri Lanka Thorbjørn Gaustadsæther will address the gathering as the Chief Guest. Leif Ohlson, Secretary General of the Sweden-Sri Lanka Business Council in Stockholm, Shiromal Cooray, Managing Director, Jetwing Travels Ltd. and Bobby J. Hansen, President of the Sri Lanka-Nordic Business Council/Managing Director Columbus Tours will serve on the panel to share insights of the tourism sector in Nordic Region and Sri Lanka. 

Bilateral Business Councils, an integral part of the Ceylon Chamber, play a vital role in the promotion of international business. The 19 Bilateral Business Councils of the Ceylon Chamber have a great impact on promoting exports and/or attracting investments through joint meetings with partner countries. The Business Councils facilitate business matchmaking events through business promotion missions, knowledge sharing events such as seminars and conferences, trade fairs and product/service catalogue exhibitions as means to promote bilateral business. In this light, the Sri Lanka-Nordic Business Council has taken the initiative to promote tourism between the two regions by means of this seminar, and to provide an opportunity of networking between those in the Sri Lankan Tourism Industry and the Nordic region representatives.
