NTB turns 14

Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) has entered into 14th year of operation.

Organizing a program in Kathmandu on November 18, officials of NTB announced that they would put their focus on Scandinavian and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) region in 2013.

The Scandinavia region includes Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and others, while the CIS region includes countries like Armenia, Russia, Belarus and Ukraine.

Both the segments are considered emerging markets for Nepal. Despite drop in arrivals from major segments, including South Asian and many European countries, in October, arrivals from most of the Scandinavian countries and CIS region had increased during the period.  However, their share in total tourist arrivals is negligible.

The financial statement of NTB presented on the occasion showed the board spent more than Rs 93.62 million for promotional campaigns within and outside the country in fiscal year 2011/2012.

Speaking on the occasion Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Post Bahadur Bogati stressed the need to explore and promote new destinations. “NTB along with the private sector should work on bringing tourists to new destinations, including those in Tarai and rural villages,” he added.

On the occasion, NTB felicitated its Honorary PRR Dhruba KC for his contribution in promoting tourism in the United Kingdom.
