Kathmandu, October 2

Gandaki Tourism Promotional Campaign 2019 concluded here today, with the Gandaki provincial government organising ‘Gandaki Sales Mission’.

Aiming to promote domestic tourism, the Gandaki provincial government had initiated an eight-day-long Gandaki Tourism Promotional Campaign. For this campaign, a team of provincial government officials, along with tourism entrepreneurs, conducted Gandaki Sales Mission in four districts.

The campaign that kicked off from September 26 was conducted in Butwal, Birgunj and Biratnagar before concluding in the capital. Under this campaign, the campaign committee organised business-to-business (B2B), government-to-government (G2G) and destination promotional activities in the aforementioned districts.

Sudhan Subedi, an official from Nepal Tourism Board (NTB), said that while the country has mostly been focusing on international sales mission activities, the Gandaki provincial government has initiated domestic tourism sales mission. “Via this sales mission, the Gandaki province conducted B2B sessions among tourism entrepreneurs. Likewise, meetings among provincial governments were also organised during this campaign,” he said.

The campaign committee also provided privilege card to the participants of the campaign that would entail them to discounts while hiring vehicles, in accommodation and other different recreational activities in the Gandaki province.

Meanwhile, addressing the event, Tourism Minister Yogesh Bhattarai said that such tourism promotion activities will also motivate other provinces to follow the footsteps of Gandaki province. “While the country is conducting Visit Nepal Year 2020 campaign, these kinds of domestic promotional activities will surely contribute towards domestic tourism,” he said, “So, all the provinces have to work together to promote such campaigns and make the VNY successful.”

Despite lots of challenges, the government is putting an effort to make VNY successful, said the minister. “We
have been continuously improving the situation facing the tourism sector and pledge to give continuity to the progress in the future.”
