Sri Lanka also topped the best 13 locations selected by British Airways. With the anticipated increase in inbound tourists; the travel, tourism and hospitality sectors will experience an exponential growth and a major demand for human resources at all levels. Some of the biggest international hotels including Shangri-La Colombo, Hyatt Regency, Movenpick, Sheraton, Marino Sands Hotel, ITC Hotel, Cinnamon Life and Suncity Business Hotels are already in Sri Lanka.
