Our Latest Reports
As Bhutan works to boost its tourism industry, other countries in the region are experiencing significant growth in the numbers of tourists. According to a report by the Pacific Asia Travel Association, Nepal's tourism increased by 17 percent in 2011, while tourism rose 26 percent in Sri Lanka and 22 percent in the Maldives. In general, the Asia-Pacific region saw a collective increase of six percent, or about 430 million international arrivals. For some perspective on the numbers, VOA's Steve Norman spoke with PATA's John Koldowski.
What is often unsaid can say a lot more than what is. Nuance and implication take on a special meaning. That is certainly the case in the new movie "Pearls of the Far East," the feature film debut by 34-year-old Vietnamese American director, Cuong Ngo. VOA's Ray Kouguell spoke with the director.
Nine people were killed Monday, 12 others wounded in the northeastern Afghan city of Jalalabad when a suicide car bomber rammed his explosives-laden car into the gates of a NATO base. The Taliban claimed responsibility, saying it was the latest act of revenge for the burning of Qurans at the Bagram Air Base north of Kabul. The attack followed six days of deadly protests over the handling of Islam's holy books. VOA's Ira Mellman spoke with Christine Fair, an assistant professor at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in Washington D.C. She says it's time the rest of the story about the Quran's should be told.
