After distributing the appointment letter, Tourism Secretary Suresh Adhikari said that Chhetri, who has been involved in the tourism sector for a long time, has been appointed as Tourism Goodwill Ambassador by the Government of Nepal.
Secretary Suresh Adhikari has said that Chhetri has been appointed as Tourism Goodwill Ambassador for Malaysia by expressing his belief that this sector will expand and become stronger. After receiving the letter of appointment, Chhetri expressed his commitment to carry out the responsibility entrusted to him by the state, taking care of the interests of the natives and resident Nepalis. He expressed his gratitude to the Nepal government for giving him this responsibility and said that he will use the experience he has gathered in the tourism sector after staying in Malaysia for years.
