Constructions of the Bentara-Dedduwa tourism zone will commence next year


Minister Gayantha Karunathilake says the construction work of the Dedduwa tourism zone will begin in March next year. Bids will be called from international investors to start ventures in this zone. This is considered as the Sri Lanka’s biggest tourism construction project so far. The Dedduwa project will focus heavily on conservation of the natural eco-system and new laws will be formulated to protect the environment in the area, during construction.

The government has a plan to convert this 1800-acre area into the best tourism destination in South Asia. The project will further enhance the natural beauty of the area.
The government will carry out this significant tourism development project in collaboration with the private sector.
