Past President of NATTA
I am extremely happy to present this special souvenir published on the occasion of Buddhist International Travel Mart 2019. The concept of bringing out a souvenir to mark the Buddhist International Travel Mart was conceived with an aim of highlighting Explore the Buddhaland, a gateway to Buddhist Circuits, so that the Buddhist philosophy can spread throughout the world. The souvenir consists of brief history of NATTA and tourism related articles covering various BITM speakers profile and importance of BITM and B2B events. The souvenir also contains MoUs signed by NATTA with other organizations and institutions for mutual partnership in the promotion of tourism, some reminiscences of NATTA history through images, and some promotional pictures highlighting Nepal’s rich resources for Buddhism. As the chair of implementing organization of this mega event, I express my sincerest gratitude to Hon. Minister of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Mr. Rabindra Adhikari), Secretary of the Ministry of Culture Tourism and Civil Aviation, CEO of Nepal Tourism Board, President and Vice President of UFTAA Office Bearers. I express my gratitude to all the tourism related partner associations for their invaluable supports. Many thanks to the writer of the articles for their scholarly and enlightened write-ups. I am grateful to the airlines, corporates, banks, and travel agencies for their support and advertisement in the Souvenir. I am thankful to all the sponsorships extended for BITM event to make it a grand success. .
