French and Belgian journalists visit Sri Lanka


A congregation of 20 press and media personnel, representing 20 reputed French and Belgian media enterprises, arrived in Sri Lanka yesterday, January 18, on a familiarization tour of the island.

The tour is an initiative of Chandra Wickramasinghe, Chairman and Managing Director of Connaissance de Ceylan and Theme Resorts & Spas, in collaboration with Michel Salaun, Chairman and Proprietor of Salaun Holidays, a leading tour operator in France.

In an effort to bring back Sri Lanka in the limelight of tourism, the value of the media coverage brought by this exercise is immeasurable.
