    August 15, 2014

    'The Orchidist' an Orchid Showroom was declared open by Ms.Pushpa Rajapaksa at No.93, Horton Place. Colombo 07 on Thursday (14).

    Orchids have been recognized as the most popular flowers for any occasion worldwide - be it a wedding, birthday or any other memorable occasion.  Beautiful Orchids are available in this showroom.  Orchids are popular in the local as well as in foreign markets.  Orchids available in Sri Lanka are insufficient to meet the local demand.  It is expected that this showroom will be a draw for foreign tourists and also an impetus for the tourist industry.  This is the first and only showroom for Sri Lankan Orchids.

    Customers can obtain Orchid flowers and plants endemic to Sri Lanka as well as international Orchids from this Showroom.  Though Orchids are usually not endowed with fragrance, there are five fragrant varieties in the world.  Sri Lankan's have the opportunity to purchase all these five varieties here.

    The President of the Tourist Development Authority Bhashwara Senanka Gunaratne, the Chairman of the Sri Lank Lotteries Board Chaminda Athaluwage, Director General of Telecommunication and Regulatory Commission Anusha Pelpita, Director Presidential Media Unit Mahinda Illeperuma, Chief of Staff Major General Prasad Samarasinghe and Chairman of State Trading Corporation Pradeep Gunawardena were present on this occasion.(NJ/KH)
