Nepal to launch tourism year 2011 campaign

The official launching of the Nepal Tourism Year (NTY) 2011 will be held amidst gala events in the capital Kathmandu on February 26, according to Monday's The Rising Nepal daily.

"With a theme 'together for tourism', the event will seek every individual's commitment to making the NTY 2011 a success," said Yogendra Sakya, National Coordinator of NTY 2011.

The much-awaited event aims to give a boost to Nepal's tourism industry by bringing in one million foreign tourists.

Highlighting the framework of the launching program, Sakya said that political commitment was a must for organizing the event in a successful manner.

"It will bring all stakeholders together at a platform to show their firm commitment that they will contribute to making the event a success," he said while addressing a gathering organized in the capital on Sunday to brief about the official launching of the event.

He further said that the event would be a forum for political parties, government officials, private sector, tourism stakeholders, army, armed police, police, scout members, students and journalists to express their commitment for the event.

He said that at the launching event, every group of individuals would be led by a unique Nepali cultural troupe with various cultural programs demonstrating tourism related activities and tools.
