 Tourist Arrivals in August 2002 (by air only) Softening in Negative growth

Indian arrivals to Nepal by air show a record growth of 68% for the third consecutive month in August 2002. The arrival from India stood at 6,138 visitors exceeding August 2001 by 2,488. The increase initiated after the promotional campaigns jointly launched by NTB and RNAC has been further strengthened with the increasing bilateral ties between India and Nepal. The month also hosted SAARC secretarial and ministerial level meeting and observed growth in arrivals from SAARC member countries including Sri-Lanka.

Among the third country markets the positive performers were Japan and China. Japanese visitors outnumbered previous year by 6% at 1666. Chinese arrivals grew by 23% where as visitor's from Sri-Lanka improved by 104%.

Overall the third country arrival declined by 24% to the total of 11,147 visitors indicating a softening in decline compared to trends in previous months. The major markets of Europe and US continue to decline. USA suffered by 33% whereas UK by 38%. Germany's pace has softened at 13% negative and French arrival declined by 41%.

The market share of third country is slowly picking up as it stood at 64% for the month. This brings the total of 17,285 visitors in August 2002, a decrease by 6%.

Nepal's hosting of SAARC secretarial and ministerial level meetings, international media coverage and the message that tourist and international conferences goes unhindered in Nepal is a positive sign to enhance traffic in the days to come.
