Nepal Govt and Tourism Board (NTB) launched Tourism Year 2011 (NTY). on 26 Feb 2010

Nepal Tourism Year [NTY] 2011 will be very fruitful for our country's economy and to the people of Nepal.

The government is placing high priority on the tourism sector in its new economic development policy. As there is a favorable political situation in the country, the government is all geared towards economic revolution in next 10 years for the up-liftment of the masses. In this connection, government of Nepal in consultation with Nepalese Tourism Industry, concerned organizations and experts decided to launch a national tourism campaign "Nepal Tourism Year 2011". This announcement reflects the government’s anticipation to bring into at least one million international tourists in Nepal by the year 2011 and spread the benefits of tourism to the people at large. The national campaign also indicates the tourism industry’s exigency to organize a tourism promotion campaign having wider impact.

Nineteen political parties have on Friday officially vowed to refrain from calling strikes and bandhs to facilitate the Nepal Tourism Year (NTY) 2011 which, with the slogan 'Together for Tourism', aims to bring in one million tourists in the country during the year.
