Secretary-Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation

It is my honor to welcome you all to the Himalayan Travel Mart 2017, being organized in Kathmandu, Nepal from 1-4 June 2017.

Tourism plays a vital role in the Economic Development of the Country from major revenue generation in foreign currency to creating employment opportunities for the people in terms of skilled to unskilled labor.

HTM 2017 is a mega event witnessing the participation of International Buyers & Sellers, Media Representatives and Travel Bloggers in one platform promoting the Himalaya Tourism. It is a great opportunity for the International Buyers with interest in the Himalayan Region and for the Industry people catering to the International Market to gather in Nepal for the best outcome.

I believe that HTM 2017 will definitely boost the Tourism Sector of the Himalaya Region and create a Brand in itself long after the Event.

The Government of Nepal, Ministry of Culture, Tourism & Civil Aviation, is delighted to be the Host Country and wish all participants a successful and prosperous business partnership.

We hope you have a wonderful experience in Nepal!

Thank you!
