Human resources are our fundamental resources!
The lifeblood of Sri Lankan's tourism industry is its people. The people who serve tourism are the country's most attractive and vital force.
Keeping this in mind, the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority (SLTDA) is dedicated to the development of human resources in the travel and tourism industry
Currently plans are in place to train potential individuals who would be able to serve in professional managerial and operational capacities in the industry. Plans include the setting up of an institute of Tourism, that is similar to institutes such as CIMA and CIM, working alongside the public and private sectors in determining the entry level qualifications for managerial positions, and for providing travel and tourism training in the travel, tourism and MICE management sectors
