The arrival has been reduced considerably until November 2021, there are no signs of recovery. At that time, the government eliminated all the quarantine requirements of all vaccination tourists, and encouraged people on vacation to come to the state of the island.
This is a welcome change, because tourism is the third source of currency exchange behind the consignment of employees and the garment industry is a large-scale employer, and the important source of government assistance to direct the country.

We face 4 to 7 hours of electric cutting every day. Monapka said that due to fuel shortage, fishermen were forced to reduce fuel lack, and their ports were trapped in the port because there were no money to pay for them.
Every time you think of possible solutions, you will face new questions or obstacles. You buy a generator, but there is no diesel to perform it. We are despair of tourists, but how do we serve themselves? I said, my friend from Sri Lanka told me that even during the war, the economy was not bad, he said.
Lakmal said, although some restaurants purchased gasoline from other cities, such as Colombo and Matara, etc., but this is not his choice. If we do this, then its cost is approximately 10,000 Rubesi Lanka ( 35 35 ), and it is quite average price. He said, we can’t afford it, he said.

The Administration ensures that tour vehicles take precedence over fuel queues, but this has led to anger between locals of the team.
This week, in a city of Colombo in Colombo, a city of Colombo is a policeman attempt to allow tourism coaches to excavate the fuel before others. Labor shortage In addition to direct problems, the industry should also solve its labor shortage.
Although the tourism industry is getting bigger and bigger, he works for a long time before Covid-19.
