The Australian High Commissioner Paul Stephens unveils the plaque to mark the opening of the industrial kitchen training facility at NAITA Anuradhapura.

Australian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka, Paul Stephens, opened the industrial culinary training facility at the National Apprentice and Industrial Training Authority (NAITA) in Anuradhapura.

With S4IG’s support, the facility will serve as a hub for nurturing aspiring chefs, providing students with industry recognised skills training, qualifications and job placements in hotels and kitchens. This leads to higher income generation potential in hotel kitchens and restaurants, helping meet demand across the tourism sector.

The Australian High Commissioner expressed confidence in the initiatives’ potential for transformative change, saying, “Australia’s support to these initiatives continues our commitment to fostering a skilled workforce in the tourism sector. Together, we are laying the foundation for sustainable development and economic growth in Sri Lanka.”

This integrated approach to skills development and economic advancement is poised to reshape the tourism and hospitality sector, addressing critical skills gaps through internationally-recognised training and providing a catalyst for inclusive growth and improved employment opportunities for those aspiring for careers in professional cooking.
