Kathmandu, September 25
The government has decided to mark the decade from 2023 to 2033 as the Visit Nepal Decade.
Tourism and Civil Aviation Secretary Suresh Adhikari says a cabinet meeting on Friday made the decision upon a proposal from the ministry.
Addressing the Nepal Hospitality Conclave-2022 hosted by Hotel Association Nepal (HAN) on Saturday, he made the decision public.
If the plan materialises, it will help the government revive the tourism industry hit hard by the Covid crisis. The government had declared 2020 as Visit Nepal Year. However, it was called off owing to the pandemic.
Unveiling the tourism revival action plan in Kathmandu in July, Tourism Minister Jeevan Ram Shrestha said his ministry would make an official announcement of the Visit Nepal Decade within the next three months.
