April 6: CEO of Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) Dr Dhananjay Regmi and Qatar’s Ambassador to Nepal Yousuf Bin Mohamed Alhail held a meeting on Monday at the former’s office and discussed about prospects of collaboration between the two countries for tourism promotion.     
A press statement released by the NTB says that CEO Dr Regmi and Qatari Ambassador Yusuf agreed to work together to forge bilateral cooperation to promote tourism.    
The Qatari envoy, hailing Nepal as a “unique gift of nature”, opined that Nepal could attain economic development through tourism provided Nepal underscores development of physical infrastructures.    
“The natural beauty of Nepal is so mesmerizing. I am often spellbound by the beauty of Nepal. Many foreign tourists have not been able to make Nepal their destinations in lack of proper facility of transportation and expensive airfare for the foreigners,” he said, urging the authority concerned to pay attention to this issue.    
He reaffirmed the Qatari government’s support in promotion of Nepal’s tourism.    
Similarly, CEO Regmi said that the government and private sector had been emphasizing development of physical infrastructures.    
Regmi also said that Nepal had forwarded a new plan for promotion of tourism in Middle East countries including Qatar. He reassured that Nepal was ready to host Qatari tourists by providing them facilities they look for such as ‘Halal’ food, prayers room among others.    
According to him, there are direct flights between Nepal and Qatar and the Qataris willing to visit Nepal would not face any issue in immigration.    
He said that the NTB would spare no effort to facilitate the Qataris willing to visit Nepal.-- RSS
