NRNs to work as gratis economic ambassadors

KATHMANDU: Non Resident Nepalese (NRNs) can contribute to Nepal by bringing skills and knowledge from the countries of their residence. “We can also hand over the technologies,” said Non Resident Nepalese Association (NRNA)president Devman Hirachan at a felicitation programme organised by Nepal Chambers of Commerce (NCC) here today. NRNs have formed their own organisations in 55 countries to work for the promotion of Nepal and Nepali labour and tourism market abroad.

During the programme, Hirachan stated that NRNs are ready to work as representatives for promoting business free of cost.

NCC president Surendra Bir Malakar expressed his happiness at the formation of NRNA, which according to him was conceptualised by the chamber in the beginning. “We hope and expect that NRNs would be more active in the days ahead and contribute to the social transformation of the country by promoting industrial as well as social sectors of Nepal,” he said adding that the government should provide the facilities demanded by NRNs as it would encourage them to invest in the industrial and financial sectors of the country. “It would also help strengthen the public-private partnership (PPP),” Malakar added.

NCC vice-president Suresh Kumar Basnet, treasurer Rajendra Malla and secretary Kamlesh Agrawal said in the present context the private sector cannot be underestimated.
