Nepal Government has formed a high-level Buddhist Tourism Promotion Committee for exclusive promotion of Lumbini. Representatives from the Government including from Nepal Tourism Board, Lumbini Development Trust, and the private sectors from the tourism industry, are part of the committee. All the Committee members met online on September 8 2020, to discuss and share ideas on the promotion of Lumbini and other Buddhist heritage sites in the region.

The committee has also been given the responsibility of making Lumbini a modality of publicity in international markets.
