KATHMANDU, Sept 28: Visit Nepal 2020 Secretariat and the UKaid Skills for Employment Program (Seep) have collaborated for 'better skilling and up-skilling initiatives' in the tourism sector, as announced at an event held in Kathmandu on Friday. 

Speaking at the event, Suraj Vaidya, national coordinator of Visit Nepal Year 2020, said: "We need to think and take our tourism mindset and efforts beyond Everest, Pokhara or Chitwan. For us at the VNY2020 campaign, the success metric is not just bringing in 2 million tourists but also creating new investments, new jobs, and new opportunities for enterprising Nepalis, especially our migrant returnees coming back with skills and resources."

Addressing the occasion, Rob Clark, private sector development advisor at Department of International Development (DFID) Nepal, stated that this year's theme of 'Tourism and Jobs: A Better Future for All' was apt and timely for both Nepal and the UKaid Seep in the context of VNY 2020.
