The Department of Tourism organized a one day orientation program for the Taxi Association on July 5 at the conference hall of the Directorate of Tourism, in Kohima.
According to DIPR, secretary Tourism, Mhabemo Yanthan in his introductory note pointed out that with Nagaland becoming an important tourist destination the people have to maintain the highest standard of responsibility, commitment and devotion. He added that economic upliftment follows in the places that become important tourist destinations.
He appealed to the Tourism department, taxi, bus and other drivers union and associations to coordinate as  tourist guides and drivers because their duty is not only to take tourists to their destinations but also to show them the best places to eat, stay and visit. He pointed out that they were the first contact a tourist makes in the state, and it was up to them to make the tourists have a pleasant or terrible experience.
According to him, tourists to Nagaland were increasing because they hear good things about the people, custom, tradition, food habits, hospitality, festivals and important tourist destinations. He, therefore, called upon the drivers’ union and associations to not leave a bad impression for temporary benefit or profit.
The program was chaired by deputy director, Veyielo Doulo. A presentation called ‘Transportation an important component of Tourism’ was shown by additional director (HoD), Akhale Vizo. Vice president, Kejaroko Pieru gave a presentation on etiquette for taxi drivers. Traffic rules and regulations were presented by Dy. SP Traffic, Seyiesezo Peseyie. Other highlights of the program included Beyond Driving/Changing Facets of service industry by NTA president, David Angami, a slideshow presentation on Driving Etiquette by Sr. DTO Kohima, Yaongsanglee Chang and vote of thanks was delivered by tourist officer, Khekishe Kapo.
