Thank you very much for all your kind words regarding Mr.Azmy who deserves every bit of it. In Sri Lanka you have a lot to see and for sure everyone who would travel to Sri Lanka will enjoy what we have to offer. We have come a long way as a company and thank you very much for trusting us in the early stage.
