The Nepal Tourism Board in cooperation with the Nepal Embassy in Berlin has planned a launch the event “Visit Nepal 2020” at a VIP dinner on March 7 on the sidelines of ITB and organised by the eTN Corporation. Nepal has some of the most dedicated people running their nation’s tourism industry. Many of them will be attending the ITB travel trade show from March 6-10 to celebrate one of their own tourism hero, the late Nepal Minister for Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation, Rabindra Adhikari.
There will be 252 VIPs in attendance, including several ministers of tourism including Jamaican Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett, who is the person behind the global tourism resilient initiative. There will be ambassadors, the former UNWTO secretary general Taleb Rifai, top Nepal travel suppliers (buyers and sellers), and media from around the world who have registered to attend.
The ITB Launch for Visit Nepal 2020 will be dedicated to the late Rabindra Adhikari. He was instrumental in the finalisation of “Visit Nepal 2020” and had been working endlessly till last week to make this important milestone a success.
The late Nepal Minister was to attend the dinner in Berlin, but less than a week before the launch, he passed away in a tragic helicopter accident after visiting a new airport project and a temple in Southern Nepal.
The year 2020 was chosen as the national tourism year of Nepal after the year 2011 which was the primary authority tourism year of the new Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal.
The government and tourism department of Nepal authoritatively reported that Nepal will take the year 2020 as “Visit Nepal 2020,” a year committed to the tourism industry of Nepal with the vision of making a reasonable brand picture of Nepal as a travel and vacation destination. This vision supports the tourism foundation of Nepal, enhances the growth of the nation’s tourism industry, and enriches local tourism as a supportable industry.
