KATHMANDU: The government is set to organize travel marts in all the seven states to revive the most-affected tourist areas due to the COVID-19.

The Nepal Tourism Board has included such a plan in its annual policy, program and budget.

The Board believes that such a mart will be important to highlight the tourism potential of the provinces and market it as a tourist product.

The board has allocated a budget of Rs 2 million for the current fiscal year to be spent on each travel mart.

The board expects the mart helps to attract internal and external tourists. These marts will be organized in coordination with the province government and the province tourism ministry.
