Tourism entrepreneurs of Nepal have demanded that the government provide them with a special package for the revival of the industry that has been severely hit due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In a recent meeting with Tourism Minister Prem Ale, the entrepreneurs said the government should prioritise the industry’s revival as it was worst hit by the pandemic.

During the meeting, the entrepreneurs informed the minister of several pandemic-inducted problems such as the closure of businesses, nominal arrival of foreign tourists and a lack of foreign currencies among others. Raja Ram Giri, one of the members of the delegation, says they have requested the minister to form a special committee to address all such concerns.

“The minister has listened to us and looks concerned. Now, we will discuss what the special package should include among the stakeholders first,” he says.
