Priceless Promotional Opportunity Lost – Achala Jagoda Regarding ‘Akon’ Concert

Mar 27, 2010 11:42:02 AM - thecolombotimes.com

Tourism Minister Achala Jagoda said Sri Lanka lost a "priceless" promotional opportunity by banning the US star Akon from performing at a concert in Colombo. He said, "We were expecting about 5,000 to 6,000 tourists from India, Maldives and Malaysia to watch the show. The mileage we would have got would have been priceless."
