IN THE SPOTLIGHT
NSET and HAN sign MoU

Hotel Industry, a major stake of national economy and considered to have the highest local private sector investment in Nepal with the recorded investment of around Rs. 100 billion is one of the main sectors of Tourism Industry in Nepal. Tourism Industry contributes around 9% of GDP to national economy. From the disaster risk management perspectives, private sector entities have two-fold role in building resilience in their businesses and contributing as a part of corporate social responsibility in enhancing community resilience. In this regard, NSET has signed an MOU with HAN to work for together for the disaster resiliency of hotel industry in Nepal.



Mr. B.K Shrestha, President of HAN and Dr. Amod Mani Dixit, Executive Director of NSET signed on MOU on behalf of HAN and NSET respectively. Speaking at the MOU signing ceremony, Mr. B.K. Shrestha, President of Hotel Association Nepal (HAN) appreciated the initiation taken by NSET for collaborating with HAN for its active involvement towards disaster risk reduction of Hotel Industry in Nepal. He advised to go ahead with sensitizing the hotel sector stakeholder of all ten chapters of HAN throughout Nepal. He also briefed that HAN would extend its cooperation in every aspect of DRR and would like to work with Nepal government, NSET and all concerned stakeholders on making hotel industry in Nepal disaster resilient and leave a positive message to the tourists coming from around the world.



Dr. Amod Mani Dixit, Executive Director of NSET highlighted the role of private sector in earthquake risk management, and the need for the private sector to make their family and their business safer through the development and implementation of Business Continuity Plan. He pointed out the importance of the Hotel Industry and its contribution to the national economy, and that is the reason why this industry should be safe against disaster. He hoped to be working with HAN in the days to come to implement Hotel Sector Earthquake Safety Program so that the Hotel Industry is well prepared and that all stakeholders in hotel sector business continue uninterrupted even after a large earthquake in Nepal.
