A-PAD Korea on a mission to uplift disaster affected communities

May 15, 2018

A-PAD Korea visited Sri Lanka to conduct a survey in order to implement a community development project in a disaster  affected  area.  Their  aim  was to  enhance  the  existing  businesses  in a   previously   disaster   affected   region by means of tourism. A-PAD-SL chose Kuchchaveli town in the district of Trincomalee as it has not only been devastated previously by the tsunami but continues to experience the harsh effects of  the  drought.  Thus  on  their  survey visit to Sri Lanka, A-PAD -SL arranged for meetings with tourist experts to engage in    consultation    and    connected    this team with, Tourism Sri Lanka,   Sri Lanka Association Of Inbound Tour Operators (SLAITO) and International Air Transport Association – Agents Association Of Sri Lanka  /  Travel  Agents  Association  Of Sri Lanka (IATA-AASL / TAASL) who are members of the platform who would be able to enlighten the team with regard to their project.
