Visit Nepal 2020 – Nepal’s national tourism campaign to welcome 2 million visitors within the year 2020 officially kicked off yesterday. While several cities united to spread the message domestically, Nepalis in Melbourne did the same too. Therefore, the community, on a busy day in one of Melbourne’s most iconic place, Federation Square, officially kicked off the campaign.
Several community members were part of the initiative – posters reflecting Nepal’s natural, historic, and cultural beauty with the logos of Visit Nepal 2020 were brandished in the busy square. They also reached out to the public, encouraging them to Visit Nepal in their next holiday.
Chandra Yonzon, Honorary Consulate General of Nepal to Victoria wished the campaign a grand success, Keshav Kandel, President of NRNA Australia said NRN would work with the embassy to promote the campaign, and Tara Gaire, President of Nepalese Association of Victoria also expressed the association and the larger community’s support to make the campaign a success.
The initiative was also supported by several other community leaders – Tonnou Ghothane, former president of NAV, Aatma Rijal, president of Chitwan Samaj Victoria. Several international students from Nepal also participated with great enthusiasm.
Chiranjebi Devkota, Nepal Tourism Ambassador said ‘Victoria is committed to make the campaign a success and their efforts will be unrelenting and unwavering’.
