Govt endorses Tourism Policy 2065

The government has endorsed the eagerly-awaited Tourism Policy 2065. Minister for Tourism and Civil Aviation Hisila Yami informed a press meet held on March 26 that a cabinet meeting held on March 25 had approved the policy.

The policy has addressed pertinent issues like rural tourism, eco-tourism, agro-based tourism, adventure tourism, education tourism and health tourism and has prioritized the insurance of tourism entrepreneurs, Yami said. “The policy aims to diversity our tourism products and services and take tourism to new areas,” she added. She also informed that the meeting of Tourism Council would convene after the Prime Minister returns from his Europe visit.

The Prime Minister-headed Tourism Council is regarded as the high-level body for the tourism sector.

“We are preparing to operate the Tribhuvan International Airport round the clock keeping in view the Nepal Tourism Year 2011,” Yami said, adding that the government will also encourage more international airlines to fly to Nepal, add more trolleys at the TIA and revise the air service agreement with Qatar and India.
