Commenting on the opportunity, Managing Director of Daraz Sri Lanka, Rakhil Fernando opined, “We are honoured and privileged to host our counterparts and colleagues of the Daraz Group from the South Asian region, here in Colombo for a strategy planning workshop and integration conference.

This positioning can attract high-spending business travellers and foster professional networking, which is good for sector development and ultimately boosts the tourism industry as well.
