Dear Mr. Trump, 

 
The Government and the people of Sri Lanka join me in congratulating you on your victory on November 8, 2016 in a historic Presidential Election that received wide global attention. 
 
The United States is the adopted home for a significant number of Sri Lankans. They serve as important agents to forge stronger people-to-people bonds, contributing in no small measure to the bilateral relationship between our two countries.  
 
Sri Lanka and the United States are bound by deeply rooted and longstanding democratic traditions and common values. Relations between our two countries have been strengthened since my election as President in January 2015 and the formation of a National Unity Government in Sri Lanka. My Government and I take pride that the bonds between our two countries have grown stronger, and I am confident that your election will help build on this existing close partnership to further expand our cooperation.
 
I look forward to working with you closely upon your assumption of Office as the 45th President of the United States of America in January, to elevate the relationship between our two countries to even further heights. 
 
I wish you all success. 
 
With my best wishes,

Tourist arrivals in October up 14%

Posted on 08 November 2016 by TSL

Tourists ElephantsThe tourist arrivals to Sri Lanka grew a healthy 13.7 percent year-on-year (YoY) to 150,419 in October, the data released by the state tourism office showed.  The tourist arrivals in the first 10 months of the year now stand at 1.66 million, appearing to be short of the 2.2 million arrivals target set by the government for the year. Growth in tourism for the month picked up with arrivals resuming from India, after remaining flat in September.  Arrivals from India rose 19.3 percent YoY to 36,471 at the start of a holiday season for Indians in late October.  With the exception of Bangladesh, arrivals from the rest of South Asia declined, but the growth from India pushed the total South Asian arrivals up to 46,579, up 14.4 percent YoY.

After observing a slight slowdown in arrivals during the preceding months, arrivals from Sri Lanka’s second largest tourism market, China increased 19.8 percent YoY, bringing in 20,566 tourists.  Tourist arrivals from Japan increased 2.7 percent YoY to 2,845. The East Asian market as a whole expanded 14.8 percent YoY, with 31,597 tourists. Arrivals from Western Europe, Sri Lanka’s largest source market as a region, increased 16.4 percent YoY to 42,790, with German arrivals increasing 26.5 percent YoY to 12,246. British arrivals increased 10 percent YoY to 10,964, while arrivals from France increased 10.1 percent YoY to 5,849, mainly due to the annual conference of the French travel agents’ association held in Sri Lanka, which brought in over 300 French professionals. Arrivals from Eastern Europe increased 10.1 percent YoY to 12,109. The Russian market recorded its second instance of positive growth this year after the 2.5 percent YoY growth this February. Russian arrivals for October increased 3.3 percent YoY to 4,726. The Ukrainian market grew 9.1 percent YoY to 2,782 tourists as well.
