Kathmandu, May 1
A panel formed to find out ways to revive the Nepal tourism industry in the post-Covid scenario has suggested the government recruit tourism officers at key Nepali diplomatic missions abroad so that they can run tourism promotion activities there.
To begin with, the panel suggests the officials can be placed at the missions located in the 10 countries that are sending the highest numbers of tourists in recent months.
The committee submitted its report to Tourism Minister Prem Bahadur Ale at the ministry on Friday.
Meanwhile, the committee has also suggested the ministry form a quick response team within the ministry that works 24*7 to respond to all problems in the sector to be reported by tourism entrepreneurs and workers.
Other suggestions include appointing Nepal tourism goodwill ambassadors in different countries, ensuring well-behaving and trained personnel at international airports and major entry points and cooperation with local governments among others.
