Nepal’s tourism is one of the sectors worst affected due to corona virus pandemic. Amid this, different tourism associations have requested their landlords to take only 50 per cent house rent and also provide a discount on their utility bills.
Based on a decision taken during a meeting with tourism associations, 11 tourism associations jointly decided to ask the landlords to reduce their house rent. The meeting was held among Nepal Association of Tour and Travel Agents (NATTA), TAAN, NMA, NARA, NTVA, TBAN, TTDC, VITOF Nepal, Foreign Currency Entrepreneurs Association Nepal, Kailash Yatra Association and Export Council of Nepal.
In progression of lobbying, further other tourism associations also showed their solidarity in this initiation.
