On his appointment, Mr. Pradhananga said: “I am very happy to be a HiTA Ambassador, and I am sure I can explore new avenues for outbound travel from Nepal to Hawaii. We have many clients booking travel to the USA – why not focus on Hawaii?”
The President of the Hawaii Tourism Association, Mr. Juergen Thomas Steinmetz, had this to say: “Recently I visited Nepal. Even though the outbound tourism industry is still small, it is growing. Many more citizens in Nepal these days have the money to travel – and they do travel overseas. The United States is a prestigious and popular market for Nepal, and we should make Hawaii the crowning jewel of destinations when considering travel to the United States.”
The HiTA Ambassador program continues to expand, providing the establishment of new market for Hawaii tourism. Previous Ambassadors include: Pankaj Pradhananga, Four Season Travel&Tours, Nepal; Patrick Wong, World Express Pte Ltd., Singapore; Jayesh Ashar, Pearls Travels, India; Jorge Gonzales Carling&Juliana Osorio, World Tours, Colombia; and Walter R. Dias, Unique Choice, Qatar.
