By A Staff Reporter Kathmandu, Sept. 11: Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Nepal Chapter in collaboration with Visit Nepal Year 2020 and Nepal Tourism Board is organising Nepal-India-China Expo (NICE) in Kathmandu from February 21 to 24, 2020. Organising a press conference in the capital on Wednesday, PATA informed that the event is the first of its kind to bring stakeholders of Nepal, India and China together. NICE is a noble concept envisioned by PATA Nepal Chapter as the first tri-nation tourism expo, bringing together tourism and hospitality stakeholders and organisations from public and private sectors of the three neighboring countries, said Sunil Sakya, president of PATA Nepal. “It will be a single platform to facilitate stakeholders of all three nations with unparalleled networking and business opportunities, industry insights and inspiration,” he said. Nepal is rightly and geopolitically placed between the two giant economies and can contribute hugely to bridging tourism development potentials of these countries, he said. The main objective of this expo was to bring together the two emerging giant economies and tourism powerhouses - India and China to foster the untapped tourism potentials and integrated business opportunities with Nepal as a facilitator, he said.
