The Easter Sunday terror attack in Sri Lanka is so far the worst terror attack in the country that killed more than 250 people and left dozens of others injured. The impact has worst hit the tourism sector of the country as people no longer want to visit the island country in fears of future terror attacks.
It is believed that the Muslim minority in the country out of the total population are in risks of being attacked following the Easter Sunday attack by one of the Islamist affiliated groups of the country. In response to the deadly attack, Sri Lanka tourism has figured out a new recovery plan that will ensure the safety and security of the tourists.
The tourism board has revealed that that it has deployed trained teams to the hotels that were affected by the attack and in addition to that it had deployed trained forces to all the hospitals along with the airport to ensure that all the tourists who were affected directly in the attacks were given attention care and assistance that was needed.
The tourism has also set up help desks at the tourist information centers, hotels, and airports along with an emergency hotline for ensuring smooth flow of communication and information between tourists and their loved ones at home.
The Chairman of Sri Lanka tourism, Kishu Gomes said that the emergency recovery was needed to ensure the safety of tourists and also to regain the confidence of the global travelers and operators. It is vital for future tourists to be reassured that the Sri Lankan government was taking all the necessary steps to take measures for any such future incidents and provide full security to them.
