Kathmandu: Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Prem Bahadur Ale has said that the tourism sector of Sudurpaschim needs to be developed.
Speaking during a program on Monday, Minister Ale remarked that all efforts must be put in to develop tourism in far western regions of Nepal as this region remains overlooked and ignored for a long time.
Minister Ale also pointed out that the federal and provincial government of Sudurpaschim should come out with concrete development plans in this connection in time without a delay and the locals should move hand in hand with the provincial government.
