British Ambassador Andy Sparkes and Purna Chandra Bhattarai, Joint Secretary at the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, on 20 August signed a contract agreement.

According to press release of British Embassy, under  the agreement the UK will provide English language training to Tourist Police in Pokhara.

During the signing ceremony, ambassador Sparkes said, "this is a small intervention but we hope that it could lead to bigger things. Nepal is poised to increase its tourism and would benefit particularly from visits by wealthy tourists who have many destinations to choose from and will go where they feel most comfortable. If they are able to deal with friendly English speaking tourist police this will do a lot for their confidence and so encourage them to come back to Nepal, and bring their friends. In short, English speaking tourist police can play a very important role in giving foreign visitors a positive impression of this beautiful country."
