World Economic Forum (WEF) has released the Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report 2013 in which Nepal continued to exist on the positon of 112th in the world travel and tourism rankings.

Nepal stand above Bangladesh (123th) and Pakistan (122th). On the other side, Nepal is ranked below Sri Lanka (74th) and India (65th) among the South Asian countries. It’s surprising that Nepal hasn’t made any progress over last two years whereas all these four countries have made progress.

Inspite of this indifferent ranking of Nepal, former chief executive officer of Nepal Tourism Board, Prachanda Shrestha said

“Despite political transition, Nepal holding the same position in travel and tourism rankings should be considered satisfactory.”

He added ” On top of the infrastruture and investment bottleneck, Nepal has poor policy support and state priority to fully capitalised travel demand in Nepal.”
