We don't need tourism. Is this axmaq administration capable of doing anything right? Tourism brings uskag into the country. It is also an unreliable industry that can be hit by anything. All there needs to be is one alshabab explosion and that's your whole tourism pipe-dream industry fcked. I don't want SL to become one of the hunderds of two-bit banana republics that only have tourism as their main industry like the carribean islands or shitty african/asian countries like nepal or mozambique or tunisia.
What we need is real engine for growth and stability. That can only be achieved by industrialisation and manufacture. If you look at every rich country, the service sector is literally the last thing they invest in. They all got rich from industrialisation and exporting manufactured goods. It's how you become a successful, self-reliant and powerful nation. Iran is million times better than Egypt, a tourist hot-spot, despite sanctions because it produces and exports everything it needs. As opposed to egypt which imports technology and even food, despite sitting on the nile.
How can you even have a tourist sector with no f-king infrastructure?
