Hotel associations of Nepal and Sri Lanka have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the promotion of tourism in both countries.
After signing the MoU, Chairperson of Hotel Association Nepal Shyam Sundar said though Nepal-Sri Lanka diplomatic relations were established 55 years ago, the economic sector has not exchanged any substantial cooperation.
He also expressed confidence that mutual relations between the two countries would be further enhanced through tourism in the coming days.
Also present on the occasion were tourism entrepreneurs of both countries. It is noted that around 70,000 tourists arrive in Nepal every year, of which almost 80 percent visit Lumbini.
