Following the COVID-19 epidemic, the Kingdom of Bhutan reopens its borders to international visitors, Mumbai (Maharashtra), September 23 (India).Since welcoming visitors to our country in 1974, the country has introduced a new tourism agenda, which includes changes in three main areas: enhancements to its sustainable development policies, infrastructure upgrades, and the enhancement of the guest experience.However, its intention and spirit became diluted over the years, without us even realizing it.As we reset as a nation after this disaster and officially open our doors to visitors today, we are reminding ourselves of the essence of the plan, the values and ideals that have defined us for generations, said Bhutan's Prime Minister, Dr Lotay Tshering.High value goods are typically classified as high-end items and luxurious recreational facilities.That isn't Bhutan.Low visitation also does not mean that you can restrict the number of visitors.We will honor each one of you who comes to us to treasure our ideals, while we also learn as much from them. Our youth and professionals in the tourism industry are the best conduit to achieving our aim.Although those involved in the tourism business will take center stage, the entire region is the tourism industry, and every Bhutanese is a host.We're asking our friends to pay a minimum fee, but it will be reinvested in us, the place where we meet, which will be our shared asset for generations.Dr Lotay said, We are welcome to Bhutan. The fees collected will cover national initiatives that preserve Bhutan's cultural traditions, as well as infrastructure upgrades, and opportunities for youth, as well as free healthcare and education for all.In addition to preserving Bhutan's natural habitat, some of the Sustainable Development Fee funds will be used to help offset the carbon footprint of visitors by planting trees, supporting workers in the tourism sector, cleaning and maintaining trails, reducing the country's dependence on fossil fuels, and electrifying Bhutan's transportation sector, among other initiatives.As a country vulnerable to the effects of climate change (expanding glaciers, floods, and unpredictable weather patterns), Bhutan will continue to pursue initiatives to preserve its Our future requires us to protect our heritage and to forge new paths for the next generation, according to Mr. Dorji Dhradhul, Bhutan's tourism chief general.We need tourism to benefit Bhutan economically, as well as socially, while maintaining a low ecological footprint.Our new strategy aims to provide high-quality experiences for guests, as well as well-paid and fulfilling jobs for our citizens.
