NATTA’s 50years’ tireless service of uniting nation’s travel agents and tour operators for a common mission of entrepreneurship, professionalism and prosperity and for the promotion of Nepalese tourism speaks in volumes its dedication for the development of tourism industry of Nepal.
NATTA has set out various programs to celebrate the event; some have already been organized while others are yet to be completed. In this connection, NATTA organized a cycle rally and Clean up Campaign at some of the Historical Sites like Kathmandu Durbar Square and Patan Durbar Square to generate awareness to the public about cleanliness of the tourism sites and to draw attention of the concerned authorities that the earthquake hit tourist sites are desperately waiting to be reconstructed. NATTA along with Qatar Airways dedicated this year’s blood donation program to the Golden Jubilee. In addition, to make college students participate in tourism discourse, college level essay competition has also been organized on this historic occasion. There are many programs like Twenty First Convention of NATTA, Round Table Conclave, Award Ceremony and other quite feverish entertainment programs have been kept
