Every year, around 3, 00,000 tourists visit Pokhara and Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP). According to first research, Pokhara International Airport has the potential to welcome 2.5 million tourists to Pokhara, ACAP and the peripheries of Province 4 which also provides sustainable employment to 10 million Nepalese. To achieve the induced economic potential from Pokhara International Airport will require vertical integration from different sectors and businesses. Tourist sites will be developed while protecting the environment and ecology of key sites in Province 4. These sites will be developed with the involvement of the local people.
