All those who are thirsty to enjoy the natural beauty of the country are now living under house arrest due to the COVID 19 epidemic. All the tourist centers of the country have been closed and a lot of loss aggregated by this time.
Not only in Bangladesh but also all the countries of the world have faced this loss. As the lockdown is going on in the country, the nature of the country has changed like today. Fauna migration has increased.
As a result, various quarters of the country have started proposing new decisions to protect life and nature. There is a demand to think in a new way about life and nature.
All government and non-government organizations have now started thinking in a new way about tourism. If the current Corona situation became normal, it is expected that a formal declaration will be made to protect life and nature in countrywide. This is informed by the Chief Executive Officer of Bangladesh Tourism Board Mr. Jabed Ahmed.
He said, “Tourism teachers and students will be involved in various ways for the development of tourism. Bangladesh Tourism Board will soon launch a full website, which will be transformed into a satellite account system for tourism.”
At that time, 17 proposals were put forward by the Combined Tourism Alliance (CTA). The recommendations are as follows: –
- 1. Determining the capacity of tourist areas in Bangladesh.
- 2. Conducting tourism census.
- 3. Establishment of a tourist village.
- 4. Creating a tourism training policy.
- 5. Introduction of National Tourism Research System.
- 6. Establishment of Tourism Board offices in 64 districts.
- 7. 24-hour tourism help desk and coordination branch launched
- 8.Introduction of Tourism Satellite Accounting System (TSAS).
- 9.Introduction of Bangabandhu Tourism Medal and National Tourism Trophy.
- 10.Formation of an emergency fund for marginal tourists.
- 11. Setting annual targets for tourism exports.
- 12. Determining the tourism icon.
- 13. Formulation of wetland tourism policy.
- 14. Introducing World Ijtema for Muslim, Buddhist Circuit Tourism for Buddhists, Sitapith for Hindus, and other attractions for followers of traditional religions under religious tourism.
- 15. Not more than 1,200 tourists will be allowed to visit St. Martin every day.
- 16. All types of tourist arrivals will be stopped once a week.
- 17. Adopting strategic planning of tourism.
Hope, if those are implemented effectively under Eco-Tourism without delay or hesitation, will help to bring many benefits to the environment.
