Hemant K. Sharma Mentor/ CEO NTP say “If you observe the macro picture post covid19, there’s massive slowdown and loss with the world economy in the coming years, with big recession that all are talking around”. We can observe the change with the energetic Asian market and demand in the American & other Eastern locations - with probable stagnation of overall consumable items & limited interest in the service products like hotels, restaurants, Destination sales .New emerging perspective will be self-catering and quality control thrust – Observed and taken care by the Destination Sales Agents & tourism board.
“Concern in the industry right now is that at what stage international travel will resume and with what restrictions,” As the Virus is having impact all over the world at various levels with different timeframes – so I hope travel to start gradually In a controlled manner and then move ahead in full swing in all the markets & global locations. The process will be slow meticulous and steady now.
Travellers Affected by the pandemic situation & recession along with the slow economic growth will always seek either an economical or more value-added products with quality standards. It has become amply clear to us that value bound products, especially in the hotel, hospitality & brand segment with quality control will become first choice of the tourism sector, hence service providers and infrastructure will have to work on the subject during the COVID 19 phase so that once the period is over we are able to better sell the destination. People will not trust the showcasing but will always prefer to look for the quality standards offered by the service providers. Now the concept of flexibility & self-catering convenience would emerge in order to be doubly sure
NTP is working on the subject by coordinating with the service providers like Hotels, transport & airlines & would ensure 24 x 7 assistance. NTP would opt for the properties, food / restaurants and services for the guest that are maintaining quality control and checks with the maintenance. We have re augmented our business and sales strategy - only those hotels which have marked to our parameters of hygiene and quality control for the holidays and pilgrimage bound to Nepal www.nepaltourism.ntpgroups.com and India www.indiatourism.ntpgroups.com will become our promotion and sales choice. We would always prefer sending our kitchen and manpower with the Kailash Yatra Groups like other times (purely dependent upon China Government for the allocation of services & conduction of the Yatra via Nepal Route).
