Many tourists visiting Sri Lanka are on the lookout for investment opportunities in the country. Such tourists are also a major and reliable source that could provide details of investment opportunities available in Sri Lanka to their home countries. To inform professional tourist guides largely engaged with tourists regarding investment and business opportunities in the country, would in turn help attract foreign investments to the country.
