npljournalis

Indians and Chinese tourists should look at Nepal as a destination.

Visit Nepal Year 2020 Secretariat has targeted increasing tourist arrivals from neighboring India and China by 100,000 each in 2020.

Suraj Vaidya, the Nepal program coordinator spoke at the  Society of Economic Journalists Nepal (SEJON) in Kathmandu on Sunda. He also said Nepal was expecting an additional 30,000 tourists from South Korea, 20,000 from Japan, 30,000 from Bangladesh and 20,000 from Thailand.

At the same time the Nepal Tourism Board is trying to increase arrival  from Germany by 7,000, and UK and France by about 6,000 each.

Visit Nepal 2020 Secretariat is focusing on increasing one-stop flights from Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Hong Kong, and Thailand.

Stating that infrastructure and service at the country’s only airport are not up to the mark, Vaidya said that 80 volunteers will soon be placed at different domestic and international terminals of Tribhuvan International Airport to facilitate visitors.

Vaidya also said that Nepal would organize sporting events like sky diving, Mustang Trail Race, Karnali Kayak Race, ice climbing, ice hockey and ice skating, among others, during the year.

Nepal will host 5th Sustainable Summits Conference 2020 on June 1-5, 2020.

The government has set a target of welcoming two million tourists during the yearlong promotional campaign. Spending per capita tourist spending to US$ 75 is another target of the campaign.
