Tourists from USA spent $92.2 billion dollars abroad in 2014 according to UN World Tourism Organization.

There are more than 100 stalls by foreign government tourism boards. From Asia, there are stalls by India Tourism, China National Tourism Office, Japan Tourism Board, Tourism Malayasia and host of others but nowhere to be seen Nepal Government's flagship bearer Nepal Tourism Board.

According to World Travel and Tourism Council, world tourism contribution to the world economy is 7.6 trillion dollars. Nepal had earned 171.6 billion rupees from tourism in 2014 alone. Last year, Nepal Government had also declared Year 2018 as 'Nepal Visit Year' while expecting to attract one million tourists. But in 2014, there were 7,90,118 tourists arrived in Nepal where as there were only 5,38,970 tourists visited Nepal in 2015 due to the earthquakes. Without participating in like this events, how Nepal can attract a million tourists is left yet to be seen.
