Minister Shrestha, who was addressing the 50th Annual Genaral meeting of Nepal Associational of Tour and Travel Agents (NATTA) in the capital on Thursday, said that tourism industry is the only industry of its kind where massive profits and returns can be expected from minimal investment.
“So tourism industry should fall in the priority list of both the government and the private sector.” He said, adding that national flag carrier Nepal airlines has almost been relegated to a situation of being without any aircrafts and that the country can breathe a symbol of relief only after it gets aircrafts from Europe and China for both national and international operation
