Kathmandu, March 21
Nepal is all set to resume its tourism promotion campaign at the international level after a gap of a year.
Nepal Tourism Board says the country will physically participate in South Asia’s Travel and Tourism Exchange (SATTE) in India later this week. The event will be organised in Greater Noida from this Wednesday to Friday.
Nepal’s participation in such an international event is the first since the government halted the international campaigning citing the Covid-19 fears in March last year.
The board will lead the country in the event, but 25 companies including the national flag carrier Nepal Airlines Corporation will also join, informs the board.
The board’s CEO Dhananjay Regmi says the event will be important for Nepal as India is yet to resume visa services for several countries in the world.
The board plans to decide about other upcoming events in India and other countries after assessing the response it gets during the SATTE.
Meanwhile, a new plan has been made to attract Indian tourists, focusing on hill stations and destinations near the border, according to him.
