Nepal Tourism Minister Yogesh Bhattarai said on Thursday that they had proposed four actions to help revitalise the economy even as the fight against the virus continues—increase flight frequency, allow projects to bring foreign technicians, resume domestic flights and open trekking and mountaineering.

“The proposals were tabled at the secretariat of the COVID-19 Crisis Management Committee today,” said Bhattarai, speaking at an interaction organised by the Society of Economic Journalists-Nepal.

“As Nepalis, mostly migrant workers, are returning home in large numbers, we discussed increasing the flight frequency with the Foreign and Labour ministries and the prime minister to help them.”
