Central Province is an area with full of small industries. Most of these industries are functioning amidst many difficulties. One of the major issues faced by the people involved in small industries is the lack of awareness about the field of tourism as well as its market.
Focusing on this area a training program was conducted by the Department of Trade, Commerce and Tourism, Central Province for those who are involved in traditional small industries such as “Dumbara Rata” ,“Sesath” and “Laakshaya”. The main aim of this program was to encourage the small scale entrepreneurs to continue their traditional businesses while creation a pathway to connect with the tourism industry.
