He said that the government is planning to establish Nepal Academy of Tourism and Hotel Management (Nathum) colleges in all seven provinces within one year. Minister Shrestha said that initially there is a plan to establish the college in Gandaki, Lumbini and Madhesh provinces.

Minister Shrestha believes that because the demand for skilled manpower in the tourism sector is increasing, Nathum will achieve success and that those who want tourism education will have to go to Kathmandu. He informed that an agreement has been reached with Kathmandu University for the establishment of Nathum College in the province.
