Another tourist ship arrives in Trincomalee. Residential Manager of the Trincomalee Harbour J.A. Chandraratne said that the number of ships calling at the Harbour was on the increase.
He said this was mainly due to the total elimination of terrorism in the island. This is the fourth tourist vessel to call at the Harbour this year. 67 French tourists arrive in this vessel. They undertook visits to several historic areas including Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa.
