The Central Provincial Council has invested 2.5 million rupees with the Sabaragamuma University to formulate a long term plan to develop and market Central Province as a tourist destination.
Chief Minister and Minister of Tourism of Central Provincial Council said that though there are several world famous tourist attractions in Kandy it is still considered a transit destination where the average stay is around two days.
In exception to the Sacred Tooth Relic and Peradeniya Botanical Gardens other attractions are not properly marketed.
Hence it was decided to invest 2. 5 million rupees with the Sabaragamuwa Provincial Council to get their expertise to have a long term plan to highlight the lesser known attractions in Kandy and market them internationally.
