EFECS Team conducted a focused data collection campaign in collaboration with Northern Province Tourism Bureau to update the SME Database in Real North Website to give prominence to the Northern SMEs supported by the project among the national and international potential travelers. Accordingly, 124 Hoteliers in the Northern Province provided their details to be listed under the Real North initiative.
Based on the requests, EFECS Tourism Digital Team in collaboration with Northern Province Tourism Bureau updated all northern hoteliers & restaurant information including the email and web addresses.
As a result of this exercise, a comprehensive database of 124 Hotels operating ni Northern Province was uploaded to the Real North Website on 25th May 2021. “This will be the real platform for northern tourism entrepreneurs to promote their businesses as well as to make the market linkages with the travelers” said Mr. Stanley Mascarenhas commending the activity performed by the EFECS Digital Team on behalf of the Northern Province.
