EPISODE 13: Chairman of Jetwing Hiran Cooray is not just a global hospitality leader. He is also one of the most affable, articulate and disarming of all hospitality leaders. In this episode, he speaks candidly to Catherine and about the lockdown, the economic consequences and the future of tourism in Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka had emerged strongly from the bombings, but now Cooray believes the global nature of the virus will mean a much longer and deeper impact on both the economy and tourism.
