Kathmandu, December 30
Although the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation (MoCTCA) had announced it would invite tourism ministers from over 30 countries, participation of high-level foreign delegates for the inauguration of Visit Nepal 2020 campaign will not be as envisaged.
Contrary to the ministry’s expectations, tourism ministers from only four countries and high-level representatives from three countries will participate in the inauguration ceremony.
According to the ministry, tourism ministers from India, China, Myanmar and Jamaica will come to Nepal to attend the inauguration ceremony.
Likewise, high-level government representatives from Qatar, Bhutan and Cambodia will be attending the function on January 1.
January 1 is a time for celebrations for people in most countries across the world and since most of them are on holiday during these days the ministry has been unable to welcome more guests from other countries, as per MoCTCA secretariat.
