By India Today Web Desk: Sri Lanka will hold discussions with a team of Disneyland officials to build South Asia’s first Disneyland in Hambantota. The proposed Bopitiya leisure park will be created with investments from Malaysia and Korea. A negotiation is underway with the government to obtain 150 acres of land on a lease basis for the project, The Daily News reported.
The island nation, hit by an economic crisis, will get a major boost to its tourism if Disneyland indeed opens in Hambantota.
State Minister Diana Gamage earlier said that officials from Disneyland have been in discussions with her to open a Disneyland in Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka, a country of 22 million people, is currently under the grip of unprecedented economic turmoil, the worst in seven decades, leaving millions struggling to buy food, medicine, fuel and other essentials.
