Entrepreneur’s suggestion to bring separate tourism act

Businessmen of Gandaki have suggested the state government to bring a separate tourism act.
The suggestion was made by a businessman who participated in a discussion program on the role of private sector in internal revenue collection organized by the Gandaki Ministry of Finance on Tuesday.
The businessmen have suggested that the state government should also get the revenue collected from the world’s best Annapurna Footpath, Dhorpatan, Nepal Tourism Board and other tourist destinations in Gandaki.

Former president of the Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry Anandaraj Mulmi said that the state government was not a slave to the federal government. Former President Mulmi claimed that the federal government should be pressured to change the form of the state. He suggested that investment should be increased in the state, employment should be created and income should be increased. Mulmi said that the federal government should be able to mobilize resources, the federal government should be able to delegate power to the states and the state government should make strong efforts for justice.Chairman of the Tan Western Regional Association, Shusil Raj Poudel, suggested that the revenue, tourism fee: mountaineering and tourism activities should be brought under the purview of the state government.
Shesh Kant Sharma of Nepal Mountaineering Association Gandaki claimed that lack of skilled manpower would be a big challenge in conducting tourism activities. Chairman of Vitov Gandaki, Uday Subedi, said that even though the state government has provided assistance to 304 homestays, it should be promoted by prioritizing it.
