    They’ve also asked the government to include programmes in the economic white paper for the resumption and improvement of infection-affected tourism.

    When PM Deuba received the memo, he assured that he was sympathetic to their concerns and promised to develop a strategy after talking with the business sector once the government was fully operational, according to NATTA President Achyut Guragain.

    Other demands include a five-year full remission of demand charges and a 50 percent reduction in electricity costs for hoteliers. The government should be required to funds into the social security fund for workers and employees in the tourism industry for at least two years.
